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.


21 More And Not In Ciudad Juarez

Just outside of Nogales another gun battle.

What's all important here is this-
More than 23,000 people have been killed by drug violence since late 2006, when President Felipe Calderon began deploying thousands of troops and federal police to drug hot spots.

Of course what does our country do but the exact same thing. No one in congress says a damn thing as after all it's mostly the brown people killing each other and above all else our country loves da killing aspect of doing business outside our borders.


  1. Exactly! They're mere wogs, untermenschen, cockroaches to be exterminated, it isn't as if they were real people, God's people, white Americans. No racism here, nosiree!

  2. Yup the not so new race but certainly new to place the blame on. I''ll be done dead and gone and it will be the same on da border with the browns and da pot.

    The baggers will be in charge and people will be living the new order of life here in the good 'ol US of Assholes!

  3. What a mess. It's another cost of the war on drugs. As it works in most wars, it's primarily the civilians who are suffering.

  4. What's so sad guys is that nothing is changing and it is getting worse at least that's what I see.
