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.


Rover And Me

I can tell ya a couple of things. First that I am pooped working all day and then coming home and working some more. Not complaining because it'll all be good in the end. Problem is that when I finally sit down to relax I fall asleep in the chair and don't even get a chance it seems to get around to other places to see what's going on.

Well I see the dims have found out Rover had his slimy paws on the ousting of the attorneys. Tell me something that isn't so goddamn obvious.

Will you lame dick pussy's do something about it? I'll believe it when I see it and sure as hell will not hold my breath.

Update: Stopped at the grocery store on the way home yesterday and had to hustle back when I realized I did not have my checkbook. Luckily it was there. Just about got all the way to work this morning and realized I had forgotten key,knife and money clip. I don't wanna work no more forever.

  1. Political prosecutions, illegal wiretaps, datamining opposition, lies by war mongers, illegal searches, unlawful detainment, torture of prisoners, jury tampering and who knows what else. The lasting legacy of the crazies and the sickos: Carl Rove and his bunch: the event planners for the worst nightmare in our recent collective history. Will we ever get our democracy back? Me thinks not, fellow travellers.
