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.


Take Your Pick

The local fish wrapper and the realtor's continue to paint a picture that the market and the local economy are gonna come back. So what do you do but promote these monstrosities.

Read last week sales here in a market that in recent years generated weekly sales in the tens of millions of dollars.

There are no jobs and people aren't buying anything let alone a house the value of which is unknown. I actually think it's gotten worse.

But you can buy a giant house owned by whores and life will be sweet for you.

I do not wish ill on people but when the realtor's start bailing town that is fine by me. They deserve everything they get and more not only here but around the country. Not all of course but many of them.


  1. Those lizards look a lot smarter to me!

  2. God forbid we raise the taxes on people that buy these homes.

  3. There's so damn many lizards out there I tell you.

  4. hmmmm, I believe my rethug governor has given a tax break to those who live in these homes. Thanks to people like him we still have millionaires in NJ! Aren't they lucky!

  5. Not only that guys get a load of this - a few years ago the statistic was that 64% of all the houses here are lived in just two months of the year.

    Have always said when you have a structure such as these it is not a house or a home. They are something other than that.

    All are paying for the greed of many here.

  6. A house down the street from us went on the market AFTER it was in foreclosure.
    Zillow is now showing that the house is worth 100K more than any house that is not in foreclosure.
    They are starting the same shit all over again.
