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.


This MRSI Bacteria Is Damn Scary

On 3/14 put this post up on MRSI.

Just now saw this.

NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. — Ryan Robinson went from a healthy, 17-year-old soccer player at the peak of his form to another victim of a deadly drug-resistant strain of bacteria — all within the span of five days.

It was MRSA, short for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus that killed this young man just like that.

This shit is killer nasty and isn't going away any time soon. One Fly go back to the cornfield to visit he ain't going anywhere near a hog confinement building or a pig in general period.


  1. All from the over use of antibiotics in animals.

  2. We got us a pandemic waiting around out there. The time isn't yet quite right, but it's coming: when the domestic stock has been rendered immune to the run-of-the-mill pathogens, one of them for which there hasn't hitherto been a niche, will pop up.

    Civilization both was born but also--like everything born--began the journey toward death when it brought the domestic animals into the house...

  3. There was a 14 year old student at the school near the library where I work that died from this 2 years ago.
