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.


GOP Sending Out Video Goon Squads

The National Republican Congressional Committee is sending out video "trackers" to ask provocative questions of Democratic members of Congress. The trackers, who are congressional committee staffers.

They're still pissed off about George Allen screwing himself on tape with his macaca moment of bigotry. So they are sending out their small boys who stick their cameras in front of dims trying to piss them off into saying something in anger that can be used against them later.

Word on the street is that they were all in a huddle with Billo. These fuckers got nothing but time on their hands and very small pea brains.


  1. The Rethugs are low-brow bastards and they will do anything to discredit any Democrat that they can, using any means at all including out-right lying.

  2. Well lucky for the us that we get audio of this fat guy on the radio 5 days a week to make the case agianst the Republicans. I was kind a hopin' that Fox picked him up for the teevee machine, I'd even donate a buck or two towards that folly........

  3. If they catch a Democrat using racist words, then I don't care if that Democrat loses in the primary to a more honorable Democrat.
