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.


What He Really Means Is

Making every attempt at the sincere he's really pointing out how pissed off he is that his boys were stupid enough to get caught at something that is the norm for the job. Bet on it!

The top U.S. military officer said Monday the nation’s military leadership is embarrassed by allegations of misconduct against several U.S. military members at a Colombia hotel on the eve of President Obama’s visit over the weekend.


  1. Heh. Yah, usually sneaking off base to hook up with hookers is considered normal. It's only when the morons don't pay the hookers and the hookers whine to the cops that it becomes a problem. Lesson: Don't stiff the hookers if the hookers have the cops on the payroll :).

  2. As Rhet Butler says to Scarlet: You're like the thief that's only sorry they got caught.

  3. ANOTHER great header! The colors are fantastic!

    1. You're full of bullshit and don't come around here again saying shit that is not true. I'll leave this up but not again.

      No one tells me that I am something I know I am not and say things are going to happen to me that I know will not happen either.
