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.


To This RPCV Chris Matthews Has As Much Credibility As A Dung Beetle And Is An Embarrasment To All Those Who Served In The Peace Corps

The header pretty much says it all. What a piece of shit this horse's ass is. I'd bet plenty that he was a real prick know it all special cocksucker while in the PC as well.

So you apologized-so what asshole-you're still an asshole. Just another tool of the Right to make our country even dumber than it is now.

You don't deserve to swing like others do but having part of your tongue cut out would be fitting punishment for being what you are and for doing what you have done and continue to do five days a week.

My left thumb and index finger are rubbing together and pointing at you the worst insult I can muster at this time.

I forgot to say KISS MY ASS!


  1. Matthews is the poster boy for the Corporate/Establishment/Journalist. He damns with faint praise Progressive politics and is a condescending asshole to boot. About his Peace Corps work I acknowledge his service but like anyone who has lived in a foreign land and studied the personal connections of people the "takeaways" are individual in nature. Read The Ugly American by Graham Greene: it is a good snapshot in time on this subject. But you're right that he's an overbearing asshole of the first order.

  2. I'm gonna have to see what this is all about. I missed what Chris said but heard a bit of his apology yesterday not knowing what he apologized for! Musta been bad, huh??

  3. How did he get in the Peace Corps?

    Seems I remember a certain "special guy" story.


  4. OTC- While I know One Fly has very little patience with alcoholism it is a disease. Matthews had to resurrect his career and exhibits many of the possible outcomes from complete sobriety. Everyone needs to visit an alternative reality to remain sane and I think Matthews has a hard time with that and thus his over the top persona. He's a moderate Repub so I acknowledge his bias and his struggles. Contrast him with Rachel and you'll see when someone is comfortable in their own skin. Adios, Amigo.
