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.


Grassley - The Biggest Stinking Turd In The Cornfield

This from the Register this morning.

Sen. Charles Grassley made headlines this week when he criticized parts of a U.S. House bill that would pay for counseling for older Americans' final years, but in 2003, he supported legislation that included Medicare reimbursement for some end-of-life services.

And this comment from the article that sums it up much better than I can. He's such a whore among whores.

Chuck Grassley is a lying hypocrital professional politician who counts on ignorant Iowans to return him to office every six years. Yes, he was for "death panels" before he was against them. I suppose he'll find a new way to try to appease the American Christian Taliban & its Warriors of Ignorance, led by the queen of mean & stupid Sarah Palin. Good luck, Chuck.


  1. Ground Chuck is such a steaming pile of hypocritical shit. How he continues to scare the old folks and fundys in Iowa continues to amaze me. Can you say Farm Bureau.

  2. I used to feel guilty just for being born and raised in the south. Now I feel guilty for living in the state that keeps on electing Chuck (who sounds to me like Goofy of Disney fame) fucking Grassley.
