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.


Screw Daschle

Update: I recommend you go read Cujo's take on this. He covers it all!!

Yea he's a really nice guy and has worked on health care issues before plus he got targeted by the repugs and lost his senate seat. So fucking what and Obama will stick with him.

If not paying his taxes was a mistake I don't give a shit. At this level you're not allowed mistakes and then he says how sorry he is. I pay my taxes reluctantly and submit all documents I have just to be sure because I do not want these zombies coming after me.

The Prez continues to support and the media has a hey day. What the fuck is the difference between this and what we saw the last eight years.

For Daschle to put us in the same position as the crooked bastards we just got rid of is unacceptable and Obama should have made it clear that he will not accept incompetence on his team.

We must not be like the fools that came before us but it's proof these entrenched politicians are close to identical no matter what side of the aisle they're on.


  1. So true. If any of us got caught like this they'd have huge fines and legal fees maybe jail time.

  2. They are all slimes it seems. That aside, I really think he fucked up and should just admit it but I think at least I hope anyone Obama picks will do the job he expects. He is ultimately the Decider and I do have faith in him!

  3. If it were just tax problems, I'd say press on. The problem I have is his cozy relations with the industries he's supposed to regulate.
