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 Forget How We Got Here

As history continues to be rewritten on a daily basis for years now with the economy and people's lives in shambles be sure and remind anyone who is complaining or not just how this all started.

What we have here are the results of invading another country for lies the agenda being the pet project of only a few traitors who hated using truth as a weapon. No accountability for them or anyone else to this day along with no regulation in financial matters have screwed this pooch to within an inch of its death.

Then there is the quitter with artwork on her palm who is given credibility from a third of us when the reality is that most of us are smarter and more knowledgeable than all of them who think this twatzilla is a messiah.

Last - is a couple of commercials I saw before the half of the super bull. In these having alcohol before other important items is supposed to be a major funny in this society.

This is high school stupid ass humor that one is supposed to outgrow as they older and wiser.

Not here as it seems we are destined to become something other and smart and or wise sure as hell isn't part of that equation.


  1. There are some incredibly smart people in this country, then there are some incredibly not smart people. The not smart people make for better TV and are good for ratings. Just like the old time traveling freak shows used to get the biggest crowds. Being the optimist I am, I'm betting on the not smart people to crash and burn.

  2. I wish I could share that optimism with you Holte but as it is I just can't. I want it to get better but the indicators aren't there for me.

    I understand people/readers get tired of pessimism but I will not fudge about what see happening.
