This is Bistek al la Mexicana a common dish found many places. There are several places I get this some better than others but all real decent! Kind of a tomato based sauce with generally pretty tender pieces of beef and a fair amount of it. The rice is pretty generic but the frijoles can be something else. This also includes as many fresh made in front of you tortillas you want and brought to you with a smile. Something like this costs around 50-60 pesos or $3. The squeezed as you watch orange juice is 20 and brings the price up a bit but worth it. Nothing in the States I've ever had compares to this not even close plus it'll cost 7-10 smacks. I don't know what I'm going to eat when I return. It will be an adjustment as I do this so much that is go into Puerto Vallarta on the south side and have me a excellent lunch with "real" Mexican food not the slop I get back there. I do not plan on eating out much at all only at maybe three select places. Pricey yes but worth it because it's so good. I threw away so much money last summer eating way overpriced shitty food. Several times the food got thrown away as well. The whole of Mexico is an eating machine I tell you. I'm gonna miss this.

I feel good and and think the higher temps and humidity contributes to that. It's the same every time. After a month or two you realize and say " Hey I feel pretty damn good!"

Just as important I believe the food made fresh with wholesome fresh ingredients as well contributes to that. Get off the bus in town the food smells everywhere make me hungry just like that.


Doing All They Can

That is to not kill innocents with drone attacks and if you don't like it you and everyone else can kiss your respective asses all the way up to the brown.

I'm so tired of kissing my own ass knowing too that the change I and maybe you want as well isn't coming. And not later either.

Day before yesterday there was a local tragedy where out of towners were attending an event associated with religion. A drunk monkey kills three young girls and the father of one of the girls is in front in another vehicle and is at the scene. Her graduation picture shows her to be very attractive and who I'm sure had the same feelings all of us had when we were about to graduate. People prayed in a group at the scene.

My Dad said he felt that a person had to believe in something and I do not disagree with that. I turned out to be a realist. That's not new. 

There is no mocking here it's way too sad. My question is what does it take for people to get it?

It's important because our country is driven by these two things war and religion and in a huge negative way.
