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.


Outta Here

Headed to The People's Republic of Boulder at least that's what the whore nutters call it for a party of sorts.

It just happened that there are a bunch of us around the same age who grew up together in this little town back in the cornfield. Years ago we would gather to bullshit -catch up and have some fun. Times change as we all know and it's been awhile since there's been one of these so I'm looking forward to seeing old friends not seen in some time. I doubt if I'll even be able to change the header picture. I need to get away because there are some here who are causing me great difficulties.

All of you have a safe and fun weekend with whatever you may be doing. Thanks for checking out what's going on here at OTC.

FYI- There is a murder trial being covered only here. It's the second the first ending in a hung jury. By a fluke OTC just happens to be the venue where this is being played out. A few of us were wondering just how many times this guy got plugged and as it turns out we were correct-plenty! Link

Later-OF and don't take any shit!!
