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.


Box Canyon Blues

UPDATE Check this out. They were all body builders in new black t-shirts wearing new bandanas and playing the role of agent-provocateurs trying to goad the crowd to follow them into a confrontation with the police on the West side of the park.

Remember how in old western movies the outlaws would make the mistake of going into a box canyon when the posse was chasing them. Nothing could be better for those with the badges. Since the DNC is being held in cow town/wannabea cowboy central you revisit those days of yesteryear and make one. How convenient . Herd them to where you want them and make the box canyon. Then make them pay for exercising their rights even though they don't deserve it. The old west lives on and it sucks for those who have the balls who speak for me.

Pretty much knew this was the way protesters were going to be handled during this event but it's very disturbing and it indicates what will happen anywhere if large numbers of people gather to protest the and I will use the term system. Dissent like this is not going to be tolerated ever. Not going to happen. Look the fuck out.

After trapping the crowd between two buildings, hundreds of officers used pepper spray, batons and unwarranted aggression.

Here is the link to the video.


  1. Stay the fuck out of town except for crucial supplies .

    I'm crazy but I ain't fucking stupid, I have been dealing with the Police State on a first hand basis for twenty years.
    I go out of my way to keep from even talking to a cop.
    Wake the fuck up people, they will kill you and walk off with a pension and an attaboy.

  2. I'm gonna say it again: Buy more ammunition.

  3. anymore I hate the pigs. I used to think the cops were the mostly good guys keeping me safe but now I think they are the strong armed bullies of the fucking out of control government--a part of Big Brother, used to keep us in line like sheep.
