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.

Lov'in the Klan Down In Florida

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida school board voted late Monday night to keep the name of a Confederate general and early Ku Klux Klan leader at a majority black high school.

This example indicates the state of Florida still lives in the dark ages when it comes to racism and bigotry and what's even more disgusting is that they're proud of it.

  1. I'm conflicted by this argument. One side says N. B. Forrest was bad, the other side says he was good. Some don't care.

    All war is a terrible. But we must remember them - if only to try never to repeat them. I wonder about the motives of those who support naming a school after a Civil War general no more than I wonder about those who protest it. The name is part of the history of that war and isn't in itself good or bad. Somehow I don't think the students care overmuch.
    I think all the parties involved should be far more concerned about the quality of the education offered there instead of getting their nickers in a twist over the school's name.
