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.


McBush Unleashes His Attack Dogs On Librarian Granny In Denver

UPDATE 7/9/08 If you would like to help Carol Kreck in defense of all of our First Amendment rights go HERE.

Ok so maybe she's not a granny and there weren't dogs either the message is clear and courtesy of ProgressNow we get a glimpse of the ordinary when it comes to expressing an opinion and perhaps a hint of what is coming when the big shoe hits town. YIKES!!

Saw nothing on this incident from the online video from Denver.


  1. In 2006 we here in NM witnessed the same behavior from W and his minions. An event in Rio Rancho - an Albuquerque suburb - featuring VP Cheney was advertised as non-political... but folks were required to sign a "loyalty oath" to gain admittance! (... and don't bother to stand in line if you're wearing an anti-W t-shirt!)

    Our tax dollars at work!
    (I emphasize: this was not formally a campaign event, but a Government-sponsored appearance by the VP to address U.S. citizens!)

  2. These guys are in enough of a bubble already. I can't imagine that removing protesters, particularly peaceful ones, is going to make that any better.

  3. If you watch closely, you can see the flag pin morph into swastika.
    What happened to freedom of assembly? How can you trespass in public? Why didn't anyone on site get upset?
    What a bunch of sheeple!

  4. P.S. Very nice pic. (7-9-08)

  5. Took a bunch of pictures that day Jeg and came away with only a couple decent ones and this wasn't really one of them. Glad you liked it.
