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 Real Forces Behind Amendment 48 That Will Give Constitutional Rights to Fertilized Eggs

One man stands in the nexus between the mainstream factions that espouse the politically correct "love the sinner/hate the sin" mantra and the more virulent behavior inspired by strained Biblical justifications for killing said sinner.

The truth behind this effort now comes out thanks to Wendy Norris and the piece she did today part one of two. It's non other than James Patrick Johnston, D.O from Ohio who condones killing those who chose to help women with unwanted pregnancy's. I call what this man has said and done terrorism too. In any case these people involved are sick bastards indeed.

  1. Thanks for the kind words.

    It does need to be underscored that the antiabortion movement comes in many stripes. Good people of good conscience can oppose abortion and work to end the circumstances for it, lawfully, respectfully and ethically.

    Groups like the Army of God, and those who cozy up to them to incite violence, must be exposed.

    Stay tuned for part two.
