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.


Mentality Midget

The simple bastard said this among other things.

"When I say I'm confident, I am so because I understand the mentality of the American people," Bush said. "And I understand the mentality of our candidates. And there's no question in my mind, with your help, 2008 is going to be a great year."

He's confident alright because he knows his side will cheat- steal- lie- screw- kneecap- slime- asshole- twist- defile- fuck your mother- shoot your daddy- drown your cat- burn your cornfield- piss on your other mothers grave- take a big dump in your sweater drawer-screw your pooch-poison the chickens-shoot your horse are all on page 1 of this novel of confidence and co-authored by media. Amerika will love it as usual especially without any lubricant.


  1. Wow, I'm tired after reading that litany. Hopefully, Republican voters will be too. And also so disgusted that they either sit out the elections or switch sides.

    But yer right. How ya doin? And dad?

  2. Spring is around the corner and my dad is getting by. Do not think he will ever be able to return home.
