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.


Remember Ward Churchill

You know the prof from CU who coined the phrase "little Eichmanns" and was crucified across the country for dosing out a bit of reality.

I read his piece right out of the box and I have no issue with that not even a little bit. The truth hurts but it does not lie. He comes across as very militant which he is so it's easy for most to dislike him but in my opinion his logic is sound and enjoy listening to him because of his passion.

For the record he is a native American no matter what the whore press may say.

In any case there is a lawsuit in process that he was illegally dismissed and I hope he wins. He and former Gov Bill (asshole hard core repug) Owens came together and Owens showed just how big a horse's ass he really is. Link
