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.


It's Getting Dark Out

They let him speak the truth because he's a small man and garners little attention. When the time arrived to serve their masters and Dennis Kucinich was still not on board they took him to the back room where he was given the "or else" treatment and all of a sudden wa-la he's on board the corporate gravy train for HCR. Imagine that.

I don't give a shit what anyone says this bill if passed does not come anywhere close to what is needed. It's a sham and unacceptable.

In the wings is Broadband legislation.

Judging from the back-slapping and high fives over at the FCC, you’d think that America’s Internet was sailing smoothly into the future. Think again.

When this is finished the corporations will be just as happy as the HC bastards. We will be screwed here as well and when they have control of the internets - game over.

I suppose many will call that a win as well.

  1. You know anything that's going to be done to "improve" Internet access is going to cost an arm and a leg. Consumers, especially low-income, get screwed again.
