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.

That's the way you gotta be if you want to run for Guv on the Gooper ticket in da cornfield.


Lost most of my respect for those people back there. Face it these people on the right even if they are nor aligned with the baggers are damn near as fucking crazy when they base their political stance on the invisible finger snapper in the sky.

  1. I never had any.

    As a child in a protestant church I never ceased to wonder at the people who pretended to have all the Christian virtues on Sunday as they acted entirely differently all the rest of the week.

    When I asked my Dad about this dichotomy (no, I didn't know the word for it then, only the definition), he always said "Shush, don't let anyone know you're on to them."

    Then we had a shared moment.

    Now that was priceless.

    Love ya!
