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.


Dumb Ass Sayings

Sayings similar to this are plastered all over the place. I'm sure it gives believer's a good feeling inside or something and is intended to turn the light on for those that choose something other.

The light remains turned off at OTC and will remain as such.

We take the position of Reality over that of a non existent cloud being.


  1. Definitely dumb ass sayings, and they're all over the place here, too.
    Thanks for the Reality link.

  2. Many churches jumped on this same bandwagon at the same time. Reality is the only thing that makes sense to me Gramps.

  3. That is hilarious! I was wondering where that was because it is pretty desolate.
    I really have to laugh at that sign. Read it again, I guess that is up to the Broad really!

  4. Boy I sure hope that nothin' bad is going down somewher else in the world as God is right now helping me get this new car sold, I know because I asked for his help 3 minutes ago and it look like the are buyin'. Amen
