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.


Mad As Hell Huh??

So are many of us but little difference that makes.

What Chester really means is that his business of killing just isn't going his way.

“I’m mad as hell about them, to be honest with you,” General John Allen said on Saturday.“We’re willing to sacrifice a lot for this campaign, but we’re not willing to be murdered for it.” Allen also claimed that the “vast majority of Afghans… they’re with us in this.” 

With so many "with us" that makes it okay in chester speak. Not mad for as long as many of us and for the wrong reasons too. 

On it will go with others waiting in the wings ready to fly at a moments notice if need be. The 1% needs to be fed. Over 50% of our nation's budget to the Defense Dept. and that's okay. Few say boo. Even less attempt change.
