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.

This Is Not Gonna Be Good

I can't imagine what will be said now. Nor what will be called for as a result. Many will be going all out nutso.

U.S. officials tell CBS News that 28-year-old Farook started searching for a wife using an online dating website. He met Tashfeen Malik and they became engaged in 2013 after he traveled to Saudi Arabia during the annual pilgrimage know as the Hajj. Farook returned to Saudi Arabia in July 2014 to bring her to the U.S. She passed a Homeland Security counterterrorism screening as part of the vetting process, and officials tell CBS News Farook was not on any U.S. terror watch lists.

A law enforcement source tells CBS News that the bombs found in the couple's home are near carbon copies of explosives shown in an issue of al Qaeda's on-line magazine "Inspire," which printed instructions on "how to build a bomb in the kitchen of your mom."

  1. Yup. Fer shure they had been planning chaos and malfeasance for quite some time. I noticed that when Mr. Farook's name was dropped most of the news readers immediately began calling them terrorists. They are still denying, however, that Mumbles Mc'No More Baby Parts' attack was a terrorist act. I remember when Reagan and Oliver North explained to me the difference between terrorists and 'Freedom Fighters'. I reckon these last two(and most of the rest) are both terrorist and Freedom Fighter; depending on your point of view. it's all crazy to me. don't make sense. I wernt RAISED like them folks.

    1. It IS crazy what's going on. I think it's fair to say we are watching society's opinion change for the worse at a veeeery rapid rate. This will only inflame the crazy even more.

      Next someone is going to go into a mosque and start blasting!

    1. I barely got a passable picture TMoon. This Panasonic Lumex doesn't do macro's near as well as all of my previous Pentax's.
      The video of this is pretty decent and could have been real cool if I had thought a bit but am trying not to do that so much.
