I don't know if many saw this as I did just one time. I find it dramatic as an example of what can be done by these people who carry the guns at a nation wide level at any time if it's decided to do so. Take a look at some of the numbers.
-162 impaired drivers arrested
-92 drug charges
-Nearly $2.5 million in drugs confiscated
These cops and you can bet a variety of other players and tactics as well swooped down and literally used the "show me your papers" tactic that works so well for those who want to see my/our papers. If you do not there will be a price to pay for that.
Here is a bit of rhetoric from the ones who have dictatorial control over you and me -
The I-80 Challenge was designed to target traffic safety in an effort to save lives. Through their efforts however, officers were also able to apprehend numerous subjects utilizing I-80 for criminal activities.
Don't shit yourself because it's about the drugs and also a test run for other crap coming down the tube. I wonder of the thousands who were detained used tactics shown on You Tube and refused to answer and were allowed to go.
For one I'm tired of being perceived as a criminal and someone to fear from these fucking bully's with with badges and guns including a license to kill.
4/16/17This 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.
