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.

The Arrogance Of All The Panetta's

This brilliant dick head has found the solution to ending suicide in the military. First step is lay the responsibility on other peoples doorstep. Then the solution becomes simple.


What a piece of shit this guy is.

    1. No they're not Linda. There were two of these last night and had seen one before and it fooled me and I scared it away before I got a picture. They're pretty small.

  5. When I saw this I was insulted but here is where we are at. Never will attitudes like this from powerful people and most corporations become acceptable for this guy.

  6. The modern way of thinking, alright. Truman had his sign on his desk saying "The Buck Stops Here", nowadays everybody in any kind of leadership position has a sign on their desk saying "The Buck Stops Over There". Which is one reason why WASF....

  7. That's DoD culture - there's always something the lower ranks are expected to do. I don't like that they seem to have not gotten it together on dealing with suicides after three years, but the day a DoD leader makes a policy comment on something like this, and it doesn't have something for the troops to do - that's the day I'll thinking something's changed there.
