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.


House Says No To Primates

WTF is going on here. For eight years they kept their own around even when he was a bad bad little chimp giving him everything that he wanted and saying nothing when he fucked up everything he got his hands on constantly shit on the Constitution you name it. Now this-they had their fun now they're taking it away for us.

In the wake of a highly publicized chimpanzee attack, the U.S. House made its first official move to ban humans from owning primates as pets.


  1. What a dumb idea. Anyone who has the facilities to take care of an animal ought to be able to. The problem is that many people don't. Require that they do, or that they give the animal up. We already have enough things that are illegal and shouldn't be.

  2. Typical knee-jerk response from the congresscritters. How about banning Jindal? He's a whole bunch more dangerous than the few chimp pets.

  3. Tom Delay needs distemper shots too.
