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.


Benny's New You Tube Channel Review


12 short videos posted closing in on 80,000 hits on the first day. Ratzinger himself is in most of them. Two dealt with the importance of children and the rest I already forgot.

Nothing new here-same old shit. Bunch of men young and old wearing robes walking around slowly some carrying stick objects in front of them pointing up and above them. A bunch of angels flitting around would have been a nice touch and without even a hint of action it is boring pass all.

One kneeler out of a possible ten.


  1. Sorry but I ain't into the Vatican or their friggin pope.

    I despise most, if not all, organized religion.

  2. One kneeler out of a possible ten.

    Is that good or bad? It sounds like a negative rating system.

  3. If you're gonna watch that shit, you might wanna consider upping your blood pressure meds.
    Hope you're staying warm. We have white shit overload here and it hasn't been above freezing for weeks.

  4. It takes a special breed of cat to watch much of that stuff for sure.

    It's been above freezing during the day all week and that's fine by me jeg. Each one is gravy.
