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.


Knuckledrag Central Alive And Kicking

These dogmatic inbreds will never go away. The signatures haven't been counted but they say there are enough to get Mr. or Mrs. Zygote on the ballot so they are able to vote.

Then there's this nutter in the state legislature who crying picked on as usual about not being able to practice his religion while attending our public schools. This kdragger says


  1. Public schools should be hostile to individual expression and exercise of religious beliefs. Religions tend toward the anti-intellectual which should be anathema in any institution of learning, higher or lower. If you want to exercise your religious beliefs, you go to church. They are equipped to handle believers in superstition and the occult.

    I have no problem with anyone going to the church of their choice but if they declare their beliefs outside of church, they should be publicly whipped for the enjoyment of the rest of us.

  2. I like that publicly whipped thing so maybe they could be shamed into doing what is right. Woody's got a post up on this that is straight to the point.
