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.


Fooled Again It Seems

Raised all kinds of hell and had the audacity to wear "U.S. Army uniforms". The nerve.

Plus they were “well equipped, trained and rehearsed.”. Well no shit Cisco!

Then there's this - they were armed with "automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenade launchers and suicide vests."

How many times does the same need to happen? Afghanistan could have been over years ago but the Empire prefers this and we are the one and the same.

Coalition military authorities in Afghanistan on Saturday said the insurgents who attacked a British airfield in southwestern Afghanistan on Friday, killing two U.S. Marines, wore U.S. Army uniforms and destroyed six Harrier fighter jets.


  1. It will soon be China's turn to fall into the Afghanistan trap.

  2. I forgot to tell you your header photo is another outstanding photo!


    1. I like it too Linda and saw it had a chance before I took it.

  3. 100 years from now Afghanistan will have the reputation of the sucky little nation that successfully withstood the invasion of every major world power. And the inhabitants will still be herding sheep and riding donkeys and everyone will wonder how that could have happened.

  4. Yes and I wonder if the Earth has a hundred left with people part of it.
