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.


Kiss Net Neutrality Good-Bye And Your Ass As Well

This is something we needed to get but like most else it is not going to happen.

A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that the Federal Communications Commission lacks the authority to require broadband providers to give equal treatment to all Internet traffic flowing over their networks.

This is the last straw folks the last nail in the coffin. Soon the corporations will control everything on the "Net". The last bastion where the truth and the whole truth could be written and reported on will soon be gone.

The battle is lost against this dark side of our country assisted by media corporations that profiteer from lies and war for the same. If this ruling ever makes it to the Supremes anyone who thinks they will rule in favor of "We the People" is downright fucking nuts.

Everything for and by the corporations!

This is a sad and dark day here in what used to be my country.


  1. You're on the ball, sweetheart.

    I've been reporting on this developing tragedy (owing a debt to Cheney/Bush's now-forgotten Total Information Network) for a long time, and it's gathering speed as it comes down the track to smash our rights (whatever we may thought them to be) to connectivity.

    The Supremes? We can only hope that Stevens gets replaced by someone "center right" now (or so I'm told).

    Gotta look for another country.

  2. The Internets are going to way of free press and free to air television. I signed a petition, but the telecoms are buying our elected officials.
