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.

Braniac Cyphers Out Why Advertising Works

A new theory suggests how the ads can work on our unconscious mind to spur purchases.

Well no shit Cisco. Corporations brainwash kids into becoming consumers and propagandize the rest of society into what they don't need but need to buy. You'll be out of a job soon when people have no money to buy squat. You have the time to explain how it works but can't continue with the rest of the story how detrimental consumerism has been. That's the story asshole.

  2. Years ago when I was in university, I had occasion to pick an elective - and I chose a class called "An Introduction to Advertising".
    I remember attending two sessions before disgust drove me to drop the course. Those in the business use different words, but "brainwashing" is exactly what it is.
