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.


Religious Crazy's Circling The Wagons

The nutters her in Colorado are feeling picked on once again as this same scam is being practiced in many state governments around the country.

A coalition that includes Colorado Family Action and the Colorado Catholic Conference has taken the first step toward amending the state constitution to prohibit the government from infringing on the religious liberty of an individual or a religious organization. Kraska, also a representative of a coalition called Coloradans for Liberty, said a ballot initiative to amend the constitution is being considered because of a general sense that religious freedom is eroding under governmental pressure.


  1. I wish their God would swoop down and take them all up to heaven. NOW.

  2. They have 1st amendment rights to protect their wackiness, how many do they want?

  3. HE: It really is not so much that they want MORE.
    They want us to have LESS.

    A Theocracy is always on their mind.

  4. As if these clowns can't, and don't, put their religious beliefs up on billboards and carry them up to my front door to expound on them.

    But you're right, One Fly, there's a good chance it will pass, particularly if the summary of the measure that appears on the ballot is at all misleading.

  5. Any time they can't shove their beliefs down other people's throats they think they're being persecuted.
    The crazy part of this is that the more they force their crap through the legal process the less respect they get and their numbers keep dwinding, which makes them even whackier.

  6. I would like to know how the government is taking away their constitutionally guaranteed freedom of religion. The problem is that they want a theocracy and our Constitution doesn't allow for a theocracy.
