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.


Cat Killer

You just don't do shit like this but I can tell you there are plenty of dumb fuckers down there in the Ditch and that is a fact!!!

A 27-year-old Oak Creek man is accused of aggravated animal cruelty after witnesses said he ran over a cat in downtown Oak Creek last week. The Routt County Sheriff’s Office has not released the man’s name. According to a news release from the Sheriff’s Office, witnesses said the man, driving a red pickup, chased the cat up the hill on Moffat Avenue and ran it over. A passenger in the pickup reportedly admitted to running over the cat because it was living in a shop nearby. The suspect is ordered to appear in court at 8:30 a.m. April 27 on charges of aggravated animal cruelty, a Class 6 felony.


  1. How many people are murdered and no one hears about it, but be mean to one cat...

  2. Or a man's dog. Don't you dare kill a man's dog, especially if the dog is a loyal mutt or a friendly Lab or something rather than one of those scary-looking breeds. Indeed, there's some parts of the country where killing a dog gets a bigger fine than killing a human being. Down in Texas-land a few years back, a 73-year old farmer shot a Mexican in the back and stood over him until he died of blood loss (rather than calling for an ambulance) after the Mexican had come to the door and asked for a drink of water, then when told go away, the Mexican did exactly that but the farmer shot him anyhow. He got fined $5,000 for negligent discharge of a firearm, probably woulda got a medal if the judge hadn't admonished the jury of his neighbors and peers. But if you shoot a man's dog down there, you're going to see the inside of a jail cell, guaranteed.

  3. That is soooo sick!

    Wasn't it Texas where a few years ago a black man was dragged to death. I'm not going to Texas because I have a feeling something bad will happen to me there.

  4. What are they doing treating cats or dogs as bad as they do people how dare they?

  5. Texans over react to things man. They order invasions and chase cats.
