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.


Net Neutrality Is On The Table

This is so important and the cards may be in place to get this done and shut out Big Whore Media from gaining control of the internets.

A new Net Neutrality bill was just introduced in Congress.
President Obama has repeatedly called for Net Neutrality. A pro-Net Neutrality chairman is now heading the FCC. Public support has never been greater.
The time has come to make Net Neutrality the law once and for all. Congress introduced the Internet Freedom Preservation Act of 2009 (H.R. 3458) to give you control over the future of the Internet.

Tell Congress: Pass Net Neutrality Legislation Now


  1. We've got to have control over something, we have lost, or are losing control of everything else.

  2. If we don't get this Holte sites like this will eventually be history. This is the one card needed to fill out the hand of those in charge.

  3. It appears this would be a no-brainer so don't expect any support from the Repugs as they have their plates full destroying health care reform. The Dems are onboard in Oregon so I'm trying to figure out what dumb Repug is going to be lead dog for the MSM. That would certainly be a fool's errand; even for birthers, teabaggers and bored-agains. Good post, OTC.
