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.

Proof There Need To Be Term Limits And Brains

According to a senior member of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, the economic embargo on Cuba, "has failed." Republican Richard Lugar said the policy, "has failed to achieve its stated purpose of 'bringing Democracy to the Cuban people, and it may have been used as a foil by the regime to demand further sacrifices from Cuba's impoverished population."

The embargo started in 1962. Do the math on that and Lugar on the years he and other long time congress people have supported this punishment against Cuba. Almost all whether new or entrenched in government have gone along with this failed effort.

Put you money where your mouth is Lugar and get this embargo ended. Yea right-I'll believe it when it happens.

  1. In my mind, without a doubt, this has to be the most idiotic, stupid assed and short sighted policy that has outlived it's usefulness for over thirty years.

    Pull yer head out of yer ass and normalize relations with Cuba for God's sake!


    Fuck!
    What the HELL can Cuba do to us?


    By the way, I want a Monte Cristo cigar tomorrow and first dibs on a 1957 Chevy two door post that still runs.
