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.


Alex Is The Bad Guy My Ass

I actually sat down at the table and had me a piece of cow and a bit of sweet corn and watched a bit of news?

An example how media re-frames issues. This is going to be short.

From  Brian Williams at the very beginning "The last thing this clean up operation needs is any kind of disruption. It's happening none the less." and this goes on in the same vane with another reporter explaining how hurricane Alex is messing things up.

This is what happens this time of year down there. It's been that way for a long time. I don't live there but I know that and understand that this is just one of the many reasons wells like this should not be allowed.

Don't imply that if the weather was peachy life would be so much better. Alex is not the problem assholes.

Stick your news up your ass!

I also saw a fairly long segment on the "Russian spy's". After watching you have one word on your mind and that is guilty. How many times have we seen similar and it's turned out to be a farce.

They may very well be but I tink I smell somting here.


  1. One-Fly, sometimes (frequently) there are headlines where I just don't read further. My advanced years have taught me some instincts and the wisdom to follow them. Consolation.

  2. You can pretty much get the jist of any piece with the header line Vlante. You just know what you're going to get if you keep reading.
    Got to be such old shit I got rid of tv years ago now.
