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.


It Is An Affair Of Sorts For Sure

Had to take some time this morning to respond to some local assholes that don't like what I post on the local whore fishwrapper. Good mind fucked repugs pass all.

I have always liked Sly and this song and consider this blogging thing a "Family Affair"

Have a good day and may the sun be shining where you are at - it's snowing here.


  1. I saw Sly and company live three times and their former drummer, Andy Newmark helped me out by drumming on my parody tune, "Just a Mario". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7d7XHrg6cgI

    Andy was also John Lennon's drummer on the Double Fantasy sessions. Very nice guy too.

    As to the point of your post, yes, I do consider myself lucky to have a "blogging family".

  2. We are family da-da-da-da-da-dee

    Did you ever see the movie "The Birdcage" when Gene Hackman is coming out a gay nightclub, dressed as a trollop singing "We Are Family" Priceless.
    This post just reminded me of it. Sorry.

    If you haven't seen it you must watch it.

  3. You Tube had that clip taken down and no I don't think I've seen it.
