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.

The Ones That Are Buying In This Market

Of 62 total home sites on 1,700 acres at Marabou, 37 have sold and 25 remain available. One of the most recent sales came in June. The home site sold for $3.5 million. Another lot sold for $2.75 million in April.

This is a local article and does not reflect in any way the market as a whole. Glance at the comments as some will make you laugh like hell.

Conversations over the weekend and reading tell me there people ain't buying shit when it comes to houses exception above. Let's get some straight once again. Massive structures such as these that the super rich have built are not homes but something other. What ever the fuck they are they are disgusting for sure. Hate to be an asshole but I don't even know these people and I don't like them and I'm sure they are very nice human beings. If I had half of the wealth people like this have I too would be a very nice person too but I would not have built a living structure built on this scale unless it was needed. Two people 10,000 sq. ft. This is sick shit at least to my way of thinking.

A bit off topic but there were a number of interesting articles in this Sunday's paper which is a bit unusual. One is about this very young girl walking out of the house last winter in sub zero temps. Fairly incredible.

If you want to slap a dumb monkey from afar knock yourself out as there's plenty of this shit around here as well.

    They are billboards that say "see how fucking rich I am?" They are just a little more sophisticated than a dog pissing on a fence post.
