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.


Neda And The Rest Of Us

Watching death happen and in this case the young women Neda is and you can fill in the rest of it.

Don't anybody forget that our troops killed at will anything that moved in Falloogeh and that means women and children just like Neda and includes people carrying white flags.

We have killed untold numbers of Neda's and her brothers and it brings me to tears having watched this person die.

We have done this for years in Iraq and Afghanistan and those we elected to stop the killing of innocents in '06 and '08 continue to fund the killing instead.

We are not leaving either of these two country's because the consortium of evil loves death and has told those who were elected to stop the killing of innocents in our name that they will love it too. Either that or else.

Nothing is going to change and if anyone thinks health care will change for the better is fucking nuts!


  1. Everything seems to suck everywhere. I can't believe what is happening in Iran and I really don't see Health care coming. They are saying the 1.2 trillion will only cover 16 million people. That is only a third. What about the rest? Who decides what third? I don't see it happening!

  2. You're right. We did all those things. I'm reading about WW II in the Pacific Theatre right now, and I think we should all get happy pills twice a day.

  3. Buyers remorse is setting in with Obama big time.

  4. You can't please everybody but I just think there are outside forces involved that are calling many shots but that's me because in my cornfield logic nothing else makes sense.
