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.


Don't Think

That's what I did because I figured everybody knew 'ol Bart but not the case. So I'm throwing a plug out here for Bart Cop because he is a fighter and puts up so much good stuff it amazes me. Something for an Okie who drinks tequila,gambles and has an IQ of 64!

Bart is a regular read for me and has been for a long as I have had a puter. If you're not aware of 'ol Bart give it a look see and it took me a few times before I finally figured this guy out. He has taught me how to fight and frame issues better and laugh plenty.


  1. OTC- Always great stuff there. Should be required reading for all Americans before they're allowed to vote.

  2. One Fly- Sarah Palin was a great basketball player as a young woman. She was the team leader at point guard and won a state champoinship. Her weakness was going to the opposite hand. But Sarah was ambitious and worked hard at this difficiency. In fact she became so accomplished that, years later, Sarah was asked by Carrie Prejean to tutor her. Despite Sarah's busy schedule she was Carrie's technical adviser on all 7 porn videos. That's the kind of teamwork we've come to expect from Conservative women: always willing to help a fellow traveller, give some tips and lend a helping hand to conquer the always tricky " crossover" move.

  3. Why does the left feel the need to pick on these two women??
