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.


Something Not Seen

Received an e-mail with text about these two award winning photos along with the idea we all wear a bit of blue on Fridays as a form of protest. You have probably seen these before as I have and overall they are dramatic and touching in more than one way.

The figure I've seen is 20-25% of citizens of this country even have a clue or know we are involved in an occupation of Iraq. There is something seriously wrong here and unfortunately will not change any time soon.

Our country is run by people who love war and death enabled by a media that has their nose buried so far up their asses the truth seldom is seen but lapel pins are real fucking important for weeks at a time. If bloggers on our side were able to present our side to the sheeple the reality would eventually win out but of course that ain't going to happen. We are so screwed!


  1. I have seen these photos before and they still have the same power. They make me sad - for the missing life and for the destroyed families. I think they should be on the front page of every newspaper in the country - until all our troops are home and murderers who sent them are prosecuted and in jail.

  2. Fucking a right!! Don't think there's a blogger on the left that disagree.
