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.


WTF Are We Sitting On 2,600 Tons Of Mustard Gas

Colorado wants to speed up the process of destroying this insane amount of chemical designed to kill humans in mass numbers.

Not only that some of the containers have leaked and who knows probably are leaking.

Plus it seems they can't get around to getting this done until 2017.

Take this shit out to the beltway and see how fucking long it takes these assholes to destroy it.




  1. Ending the mustard gas threat sooner would shorten a gov't contract for a big donor. It would end a CostPlus contract and we just can't afford that, now can we? GRAVYTRAIN makes its' own gravy, just add a continous source of public funding.

  2. I think you have a good idea there.
