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.


Right Wing Haters March In Phoenix

About a hundred people marched down the street, many wearing swastikas and chanting racial slurs.

"We are not a hate group" der leader lied!

Human pieces of shit doing what they are entitled to do in this country.

The party of hate and no science looks on from around the country and smiles.


  1. They will not go gently into that good night. The only problem is that they are determined to drag everyone else into it with them.

  2. Christ I really didn't need this. I have enough of these fuckers in Bakersfield.

  3. The scary part is how difficult it's getting to distinguish the teabaggers from these types.....

  4. *sigh*

    Will it ever end?

    btw, saw you over at Holte's and thought I would check you out... love your blog layout.

  5. Harry Truman said " any jackass can tear down a barn but it takes a carpenter to build one". Here's hoping the carpenters in your neck of the woods aren't working for $10 an hour with no health benefits because I'm thinking the barn is about to fall down around us.

  6. That's a great question I753. A guess would be probably more than what you think.

    Thanks for that Karen and thanks for both of you visiting and I like what I see at your places as well!!

    We'll play a little linky love here and do just that.
