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.


Zhaan The Blue Lady&Her Compradres

I don't know about you but I like Sci-Fi and recently found a site (Fancast) that has the first three seasons of Farscape. When I had TV Friday nights was looked forward to for this program and another off the wall interesting series called LEXX.

In any case if you like science fiction and have not watched Farscape give it a try as you may be surprised. No commercials and the player works well. It's not perfect but on many levels equals or surpasses Star Trek Next Generation.

About Farscape

During an experimental space mission, astronaut John Crichton, a man from our time, is hurled across a thousand galaxies to a completely alien world. In his quest to return to Earth, he finds himself aboard the leviathan, living starship "Moya" populated by escaping political prisoners from myriad alien cultures during a major alien conflict. Moya is capable thinking for herself, but is piloted by Pilot, who is organically attached to Moya. Crichton must rise to the challenge of surviving in a world he barely understands, keeping one step ahead of the pursuing Peacekeepers, a race of deadly mercenaries, and their leader Crais, who will stop at nothing to capture him.

Among the disparate alien refugees is D'Argo, a brutish Luxan warrior; Zhaan, a mystical, Delvian high priestess colored ethereal blue from her bald head to her toes; Rygel, 26-inches tall, who claims royal sovereignty over 600 billion subjects even though he was deposed over 250 years ago; Chiana, a quick-witted, gray-skinned sylph who wears very little and talks like a valley girl; and Officer Aeryn Sun, a front-line solider in the Peacekeeper corps who is forced to join the rebels. The refugees are also chased by the unspeakably evil Scorpius.


  1. Farscape is a one-of-a-kind show. Definitely worth watching. It doesn't even pretend to be about science in any meaningful way. It's just a fantasy set in space. As long as you're OK with that idea, I think you'll enjoy it.

  2. Definitely one of my favorite shows. Some people get turned off by the muppets, but I don't see why, the Jim Henson company does a fantastic job with 'em. I really sucks that this show got canceled.

  3. It is fun and time flys with it. Happy this series is available to watch.
