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.

Again Scrambling For The Answer - It's Right Here

Has our nation ever grieved for all the others? Of course not - never have and probably never will. I'm speaking of innocents killed by our country with seldom a mention or a consideration other than a payoff. You know the terms we use for them and our reasons why they have no choice in the matter of us killing them.

The gun and religious loons begin frothing at the mouth demanding their ways are to the only way to get our nations internal killing machine back on track. They lay the blame on you and I for not wanting to go along with their "way".

When America understands that the horror others feel when their innocents are killed and particularly children by we/us/our government and with our very own dollars is identical to what we feel today and begin to say no - then and only then will this killer country we all own begin to change.

  3. Those people are complicit in their own death so they weren't collateral damage but, active participants in their own killings.
