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.

Bullshit Called

U.S. automakers could turn to Congress after the November election to try to expedite $25 billion in government-backed loans, which Detroit manufacturers consider crucial to reversing their steep downward spiral.

If you corporate fuckers had built the cars that were needed or had at least done the R&D to be ready for times like these you wouldn't be fucking asking now would you. It is time for another "people's car" after all it's fascism we're facing. What's there to lose.

  1. Right on bud.
    They have had their heads up their asses for forty years now.
    Someone try to tell me there hasn't been a market for smaller, fuel efficient cars this whole time and I am going to laugh and push them in front of the next speeding Toyota on it's way by.

    Ford in particular kept throwing out some real garbage in that market niche year after year while building Lincoln Town cars and Continentals year after fucking year.
    Bullshit.
    Fuck them.

  2. To think what should have been and the difference it would have made in these times. Whored out politicians and corporate bottom line pricks.
