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.

Don't Think

Too much anyway. It's been awhile and with the year coming to a close want to acknowledge that there is still attention from this guy about troops and troop deaths in Afghanistan. Three in November same as last year.

Glanced and saw a number of 24,000 still in country. Right or wrong don't know.

I thought they were all supposed to be gone end of 2014. Don't think!

Fact of the matter is veeeery few give a shit.

  5. Thanks Barbara. I'm not seeing pictures like I used to - even here with all that's going on. You'd go crazy. It's sooo nice here.

    And when the !% controls the media - no we will hear little. Going down to look for a whale. Have a good one.

    I could easily hang out in that alley in Portland - but prefer that amongst palm trees.

  6. Pertinent post. The US casualties will continue in Afghanistan. But the fatalities there will be overtaken by those in Iraq (again) and Syria. To say nothing of the civilians.....
