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.


Hagel And His Own

Never a pretty sight when you see something have one of it's own for lunch.

  1. Otro título realmente cool!


  2. Most of my pictures that day were not good at all. This was one of the better ones ladies. Thanks!

  3. Speaking of "lunch," what are you eating in sunny CR?

    1. things like this.

    2. McCain was a fukin collorator with the North Vietnamse. I heard that directly from a Lt Col shot down as a AF Captain and knew McCain while in captivity in Hanoi.
      After the initial evacuation of the POWs, aboard MAC 60177 (currently at the AF Museum in Dayton) - the Senior Ranking Officers - Bud Day, Jim Stockwell, and Robinson Reisner wanted McCain court martialed.
      Nixon said No.
      McCain has never gotten over the fact that he got beat, and beat badly in an election with a black man. Well, where is McCain from Aryanzona.

      All he pressed Hagel to do was tell Johnny that the surge in Iraq that Hagel voted against worked.
      I will concede that the Surge worked only in the fact that we are no longer shipping Americans home whom are wounded, maimed, or it body bags from a war that we did not to have to fight and a Republican president - Actually his Vice Prrsident and Hallibuton started.

      How many of those limp dicks up there in the Senate who were trashing Hagel ever served in uniform - Much less, recieved two Purple Hearts in combat.

      Do a check up from the neck up on your opposition to Hagel.


  4. I've heard that before Sarge and I feel there is validity in that. The hypocrisy of the war lovers in Congress in the lead up to Irak was something else. One of the reasons Rangal introduced the bill to reinstate the draft.
