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.


How Many Times Did You Hear This

We'll stand down when they stand up or some dumb ass shit like that for years and never fucking ever did any of ours stand down when it came to training Iraqi's. Now the samo or basically the samo for Afghanistan.

And our congress sits there and laps this shit up. After all they are primarily in the war business and they relish that no matter what they say or they would get us the hell out of these situation where even a fucking idiot knows there is no viable threat.

Our country is so goddamn stupid. The threat we face is the gusher in the gulf and the dumb bastards want to drill more.



  1. You can bet yo' ass that our Congressional representatives are too stupid to lead our once-great country to safety and salvation. I am so overcome with an all encompassing sense of pathos, I cannot sit down and write about anything.

  2. How many times can you say, "Stop the Madness?"

  3. They are too stupid ,compromised and threatened to do anything that's good for us and our country Vigilante. It is hard to keep harping on the obvious and it seem to me it continues to get worse.

    Over and over again Russ because that's exactly what it is.

  4. And the hits will just keep on comin'.
    Now I have stopped going to so called "liberal" "progressive" sites.
    They are still cheering our prsident who is now a confirmed 'war of choice' President.
    I now despise the dems more than the rethugs. The dems should have seen enough by now. Yet, they keep condoning these wars, and cheering the prez on. They could not pass Afghan 101. All they do is parrot the war mongers.
