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.


Stop Kissing The Bitchers Asses

There's a time to apologize and times where it's bull shit. The racist bastard from the dumb fuck south needs/needed to apologize to the prez for instance.

Here no apology is needed and they did not once but twice.

Quintana used PowerPoint slides to discuss warning signs of drug-related activity. The slides said hikers should be aware of food wrappers on the trail, including "tortilla packaging, beer cans, Spam, tuna, Tecate beer cans, etc." — and campers playing Spanish music, among other signs.

Here at OTC the position taken that we are equally bigoted against everything even myself.

Have a good one!


  1. Living about 50 miles from SC, we get TV channels targets both Georgia and SC audiences, last night I saw interviews with my neighbors to the north, saying: "He shouldn't have said it, but I'm glad he stood up for us." Amazing.

  2. Remarkable and equally scary and sad as well.
    We have lost what little control we may have had to the deranged.

  3. "He shouldn't have said it, but I'm glad he stood up for us."

    that's what the louisiana crackers usta say when David Duke would spout off.

  4. Stood up for us? Us is as large a group as the proverbial they. Those other people is a good differiniating word tool as well. When the Big Boss handed out some disgusting and futile work asignments we hapless peons comforted ourselves by saying, "there's no we in team." Many leaders carry out their dirty work thru the surrogate plan: ya'know the plan where some poor working slob takes the rap for the big fellas dirty deeds. There is no comfort to be gotten from knowing how divided our country has become at the expense of some small personal victory at the margins of race or economic justice. I find little to cheer about for the working men and women of America in the current circumstance. As Molly Ivins marvellously observed, " Politics is not a battle between left vs. right but a daily battle between up vs. down." The white male power structure and its' sense of personal entitlement has retarded the growth of our nat'l identity. We are seeing it in full bloom now in the presidency of a black man and it smells like skunkweed and looks like prickly pear.

  5. We are seeing it in full bloom now . . . Usually when a thing is in full bloom that means it's going to die soon. Here's hoping.
