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.


You Will Die In Jail Unless You Plead Guilty

I can't tell you how much I despise authorities that abuse their power like this against those who have no means to fight back at all. Read this story about a 63 year old ski bum who continues to live that life until the badges said no even though he has never changed his ways or hurt anybody in any way. You sick sonsofbitches. He has spent some 60 days in jail so far.

I don't ski but if you have been around ski towns all of us have known a person like Charlie Toups.


  1. I share your contempt for arrogant, hateful, butt-headed law enforcement. And I've never been arrested in my life.

  2. Same old, same old in Soviet America. There was a case in the early 90's where they held some kid in jail for five years without trial for not telling them the password to his computer (which was encrypted so they couldn't get into it without the password). I guess that whole 5th Amendment thingy about being compelled to testify against yourself no longer applies.

    Basically, if you can't afford OJ-quality lawyers and are arrested, you *will* be found guilty of *something*. There are no innocent people in Soviet Amerikkka. We are all criminals. We have all violated at least one of the 25,000,000,000 laws on the books. You likely can't even *breathe* without violating one of those laws. Welcome to the Land of the free, comrade. Free if you're rich, anyhow.

  3. If someone in Law Enforcement is offended by your individuality and or bohemian lifestyle: you're fucking toast without an atty who actually practises law instead of the ass-kissing of judges and Cty attys,etc. Just ask someone who isn't white, wellhealed and connected.

  4. Ok, now I'm pissed, read the whole article and goddamit this is ridiculous. I'm thinking we establish a paypal account and fight these fuckers with cash. Here's a guy who never fed at the gov't trough... anyways you get my drift. Who know's how to handle this paypal thing? Goddamit we have to help this man and I'm in for $50.00 right fucking now! Anybody else in?

  5. If this comes together I would be in for some.
