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.


According To Free Press We've Been Sold Out Again

We need this badly but of course we were never going to get Net Neutrality anyway.  

Does anyone understand that we have absolutely no control over a thing even though we elected a majority to vote for ""We the People's" best interest's. It will only get worse -count on it.



  1. I thought the Big O and Kucinich were the only two that had a clue about Net Neutrality... where the fuck are our legislators?

    mind you, this is all BEFORE the Citizens United ruling really starts gripping the throat of our democracy (or republic, whichever one prefers calling America)....

  2. Some say it's getting a bit better Rev. Kucinich got his with the health care bill. They have been told to shut the fuck up or else.

    Of course they will do just that as they also know what the "or else" means.

    Doesn't anyone on the left understand we don't get a fucking thing except more of the bad.

    Watch the big corporations take complete control of this. That means independents like I use will be history as well. It may take a bit but that's just what is going to happen.
