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.


I Know That

Work starts at 6AM today until fall.

The crazy SOB who killed the doctor in Kansas was influenced by whore pundits on TV-radio and pulpit mind pricks.

24 Americans were killed in Irak last month and they don't have a clue about leaving certain areas at the end of this month.

Sibel Edmonds one of my hero's has a new blog.

18 smackers for filling a not quite empty 20lb bottle of propane.

$2.60 for unleaded and going up.

That we are in a world of shit and the change we were looking for is not happening.

I have to leave for work-have a good one and thanks for stopping by.


  1. Long day huh? Bet you are still glad to see the summer. I was stupefied to hear some say Tiller deserved it and was a mass murderer along the lines of Hitler. It is a sick friggen world!

  2. Hang in there hon, sounds like you have some long days ahead. You just have to get through one of them at a time, eh? :)

  3. Sounds like you are having a difficult morning. Take every moment for what it's worth. We can't change yesterday and we aren't guaranteed tomorrow.
