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.


Throw Away The Damn Key

Freezer Boy William Jefferson convicted of taking bribes.

When it comes time send the message to these sonsofbitches that there is a price to pay for behavior like this when you are elected and betray that trust.

And more important this slug makes all of us from the left look like crooks. He's not a Democrat he's an everyday thief no more no less.

Like my dad used to say-put him so far back in the cell they have to pipe him the fucking food.


  1. Well, I guess you have to admit that he was taught by some of the best . . .

  2. I agree he should be jailed for his crimes just like Conyer's wife for taking bribes. Like I've said before though, Dems steal small and Repugs big. Just holding my breath until the arrest all the housing, real estate, deriatives, etc crooks to be indicted for treason. Also, how's that Swiss banking scandal coming along? Gosh almighty, there must be heavy hitters for the IRS and Justice Depts. to be covering up so well. And so it goes....
