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.


Puppet Boobies Be Bad

You betcha there alright. The do gooders down in Colorady Springs where so much christian debauchery is the norm cannot have none of this in their fine town.

Puppet cleavage-yea that's right. Puppets just like the greased down marionettes that parade around on stage during their Sunday god rants.

I don't understand what the beef is about. It's dark more than it's light out and remember the lights don't turned on in nutterville because money be tight.

A puppet here this morning wouldn't be showing anything as it's -10.

Have a good one.


  1. That's what happens when you're sex starved. Everything you see has a sexual emphasis. I wonder if they're planning on putting big rubber bras on some of the mountains around there that look like a woman's tit?

  2. PM, back when I was first starting out, back in the Paleolithic, I considered a job with a defense contractor that was based in Colorady Springs. I talked to someone about the community and realized: this place (CS) is full of nutters! I mean, even by the standards of a kid from the BIBLE BELT of the American South, the folks around Colorado Springs are nutters. Needless to say I expressed about as much enthusiasm for moving to Colorado Springs as I'd express for being anally raped, and I think we sort of mutually agreed that nope, not the job for me.

  3. Nothing would surprise me PM. I too almost went to work there as well but I figured out I didn't want them and the Springs before they didn't want me. Whew!

    There are some real fighters there on our side-it's just that they're so out numbered. Was there in '03 to protest the upcoming invasion. There were many there and of course when they hit the streets the cops started beating people.

    I never have to drive through there and that's a good thing.

  4. This reminds me of a group of religious whack-jobs who insisted on putting clothes on the statues in front of the Convention Center in Sacramento, CA. They were so offended by the human form they couldn't cope...I don't know where to put this in my brain, but puppet cleavage? Seriously? What would they do if they ever saw puppet dick?

  5. I don't have the answer to that Skip but this is just another example of just how stupid our society really is plus the state our media is in as well. Thanks for coming by.
