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.


When She's Gone There Will Be Nobody

Watched this clip of Helen Thomas that I saw at WTF . She's about 110 years old and continues to do what journalists are supposed to do. This clip is dramatic to say the least. I feel for you Helen where the fuck are they? They're behind you but the faces not shown a perfect representation of the fact we don't have a press corps but a cabal of neck on down brownnosers who have whored themselves out as always. We are so screwed and if these bastards did what this kick ass women does everyday maybe just maybe there would be less sheep in my country.

I'm outta here for a couple days-it snowed last night.


  1. You're right again. There were two, but we lost Molly, and leaves just Helen.
    You'd think there would be a bunch of studs working their butts off to try to produce the quality journalism that those two ladies are known for. Very sad that isn't the case.

  2. helen is the best -- but the treatment she has received from the bushhouse is abominable

    the rest of them ----- looking for their next cosmo at the washington water holes.
