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.


Limpy Reid Punish Dim Senators?

Yea the ones who side with the Repugs on health care. Sounds like a hell of an idea.

I'll believe it when it happens.


  1. Divide & Conquer: This is the true leadership we see coming out of the Dems and the Obama Adm as Progressives fight tooth and nail to reform our maggot infested politics. Bankers first, the people last. Insurance and Big Pharma first, the people last. The War Machine and The Pentagon first, the people last. Isreal first, the people last. Big Old Time Religion first, cival and equal rights last. Corrupt Dictatorships first, the people last. On and on it goes as Obama and Clinton disperse their hatchetmen and women to continue the lies and play out the farce of "change we can believe in". At the end of our working lives we'll all be able to reach in our pockets, feel the quarters, dimes and nickels and fully understand this was the change these politicians were talking about in the hallowed halls of our nation's capital. They are nothing more than well-dressed and well-paid liars, gangsters and thieves.
