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.



The local fishwrapper has a piece in it as most will. Some are better than others-some are truthful-some are not. Some piss me off -some don't. Below is the comment I put on the one here just to let the local monkeys know and understand there are some of us that will never forget certain things either! Have a good one.

Yea-I remember and won't forget.

I remember and won't forget that on the same day Daddy Bush was in a meeting with Bin Ladens half brother and that the next day his punk kid sent planes and picked up over a hundred Bin Laden family members and flew them out of the country and later invaded Iraq who had nothing to do with it for lies.

You betcha I remember and will not forget!

One Fly's personal 911 story here.


  1. Eight years and running on empty; our treasury that is. Sucked dry by an illegal war, tax giveaways to the ultrarich and multi-nat'l corps playing by their own rules with other people's money. Smart, informed and patriotic citizens demanding a 9/11 Truth Commission are threatened and investigated by nat'l security police with enhanced state power. An abrogation of civil rights and individual freedoms in the name of nat'l security not unlike the practises employed by totalitarian regimes we are asked to fight against. Lines of people filling out endless paperwork to find few jobs while the rich huddle around caviar and champagne filled conference tables figuring out how little they can do for us and not be eaten raw themselves. The dead pile up in foreign lands, the wounded soldiers speak truth to tone deaf superpatriots who've never fought about anything except how large their advances on book deals will be. Eight years later and we all know one thing for sure: we are approaching 3rd world status at record speed and individual insecurity has never come at such a high price in human history.

  2. Shocking thing is, that if you speak of the vile, corrupt happenings of 2000-2008, you will be condemned as un-American, a traitor, communist etc. etc.
    You have to pick carefully who you talk to about those things, things can ugly pretty quick. We are well and truly entrenched in the "Eternal War" scenario and I am saddened to see Obama buying into it by sending more troops to Afghanistan.

  3. Thanks guys for the great comments. I'll be over to your place Holte soon- just so busy.

    My question to you Holte and to anyone else who stops by is this--

    I know this a Anonymous feller above and chew his ass our on a regular basis cuz he will not make a post on this site and tell him he writes better than he talks. I want to see something from him and do you or anyone else want to see what's on his mind?/

    Thanks-One Fly

  4. Yes Fly, I think Mr./Ms Anonymous is very readable, he/she writes more in a comment than I do in a post (sometimes). Perhaps he/she is just a commenter, I was an anonymous commenter before February this year. If Anonymous has a blog I would like to read it.
