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.


Enough Already

Hard to imagine 'far off' 2012 election bid: Palin

How much longer is this women going to be given a forum to say squat. The GOP's choice as VP was purely political because they knew they were in a world of shit and this unqualified women brought nothing to the table except divisiveness. She did accomplish one thing and that was to bring out the true feelings of so many Republicans. They can deny all they want but the fact of the matter is the GOP is the party for racists! Get your ass back to Alaska and catch some salmon or something.


  1. Shit.
    I want to thank the wench for being the capstone on the crypt of the Republican dream of reelection!

  2. Au contraire, mon ami!
    I'm hoping against hope that Sarah Palin DOES become the new leader of the Republican Party. Think of just what this party would look like: the 30% who now constitute the Republican "base"... with no appeal whatsoever to Independents or the equivalent of "Reagan Democrats" - just a party of hard-core wingnuts! This would be a dream come true!

  3. I'm sure that's a big thank you too Busted.

    Good point Russ.

  4. I agree with swordfish1543!! Palin is the perfect poster child for the repugs. She'll drive the last few sane conservatives out of their party and isolate the wingnuts so all can see their true stripes.

  5. Please, Please, PUH-LEEZE let her stay! Let her Stay! She wanders around the Republican house, like the drunken elderly aunt at the family christmas party, spouting ridiculous racist and jingoist bullshit that even embarrasses the other Republicans in the room.

    Let her wander around breaking knickknaacks and stumbling into the furniture. The longer, the better
