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.

Thumbs Up On The Tata Nano

Have been waiting for actual road tests on the worlds cheapest car after it was introduced early this month. Well they're here and it is a bit of a surprise.

People who are driving it love it and are amazed how well it performs. Some of the videos are funny as hell but the bottom line they made a excellent small car that is not that small. Plus they make good beer too.

If Tata can do it we can too and damn well should in these times. There is a market for a vehicle like this in our country/

  1. The thing is that there are so many hurdles that get in the way of a car like this. You have the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Evironmental Protection Agency, Center for Automotive Safety, Insurance Industry Crash Testing and I sure I have left a few out. I believe that a car like this would be useful and very affordable but by the time Tata pays for all the testing and certification the cost will be about $2,000.00 more. I am using the figure that wawhat was added to the Yugo, which I sold and it really put them up close to a good used car in price, and somehwat doomed the car from the beginning. Asie from the electrical problem that plagued the little Czech car. OMHO

  2. I understand that Russ but this car wasn't designed to run with the big dogs in any way so many of those criteria need to be shitcanned with some common sense involved. People need to be able to decide for themselves how safe they choose to be rather than have government protect them.

  3. I live in a rural area, so there isn't the traffic like there is in heavily populated areas. I would love to have one of those, and I really don't care what the govt or the insurance companys think.

  4. I'm almost to the point I don't give a fuck what they do to me. And if it's true that in 2012 I believe there will be a GPS tracking chip in drivers licenses I will refuse. Noone needs to know where One Fly is at.
