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.


Time To Move Along Charlie

But no Congressman Rangel says he's gonna fight. He probably will and that's his choice. There have been accusations of misconduct for years and now it has come out that he has many issues.

As far as I'm concerned these are minor compared to what Repuglicans get caught doing and for the most part aren't held accountable. At least you didn't have a sheep or something else late at night in a corner of the House chamber doing what ever to it.

No matter by being there as long as you have you have been corrupted into thinking that you are special and don't have to follow the rules even though you are a fairly decent fellow. Time to go and thank you for the good things you have done. You are not even close to being a bad guy like so many of the others.


  1. Here's another one who just doesn't know when to leave. Sorry Charley..

  2. I suppose we'll have to watch all this play out. I won't but that will be the news.

  3. Few high officials in government are held accountable. Rangel must have really stepped in it this time.

  4. I'm pretty sure step knee high into it and I won't pay a bit of attention to any of it.
