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.

It's The Mumbo Jumbo Season

How I hated this time of the year(Lent) when I was a kid. Punished for shit I had no part in. Generally gave up candy but cheated whenever possible. The worst was the rosary every night. Pure fucking torture for me. 15 minutes that took an eternity and of course you had to kneel the whole time.

Modern day Catholics are beating themselves by giving up Facebook during this time.

This year, adults — the fastest-growing Facebook demographic group — have taken on the challenge. Now Italian Roman Catholic bishops are onto it. Sort of. They're urging believers to take a high-tech fast for Lent by switching off iPods and abstaining from instant text messaging.

This straight out of the Catholic play book.

Paul Griffith, a professor of Catholic theology at Duke Divinity School, said the church doesn't have a problem with technology as such -- only its overuse.

Not allowed to have too much of a good thing when you're doing business with Benny the Rat because then it becomes a sin you see. Punishment must be metered out in some form or else life behind the pearly gates is in jeopardy. Sheez!

Whether it's Islamic fundamentalists flagellating themselves or Catholics punishing themselves during Lent the symbolism is one in the same with each side calling the other crazy.
Double sheez!!

  1. Screw religion, it's all a farce....and every one has their own Book of Lies, whether it's called the Bible, or the Koran, or whatever, it's just a Book of Lies.
