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.


A Dark Cloud Hanging Over Town

For the better part of three days the second Freedom Conference (freedom my ass) is taking place here. I only link to the local fishwrapper because in this case last year there were no articles  about what happened or what was said by these people.

But the Texas killer Rove himself is in town along with possibly a even nuttier and more dangerous slut than Palmer herself-none other than the senate candidate from Nevada Sharon Angle.

So CNN is here as well so I'm sure the idiocy will be running wild.

I think I might upchuck.


  1. Sweet-friggin-Jaysus, a nutter conference? Aren't you proud! ;p

  2. Of course not Dusty but I just found out there will be a protest at noon tomorrow by a group I belong to from Denver so I will be there. This is a small town you know. It takes maybe at the very most 10 minutes to get from one end to another. I borrowed a parking pass from a friend and will be 50 yards away.

  3. Look on the bright side. Think how depressing it would be if they lived there.

    What I would like to know is what amount of security do/did they get from local gov't and did they pay for it.

  4. Wow, do you think they fucked?

  5. CNN is still trying to be the "FOX Lite," I see.

  6. We expect a full report m'dear! ;) And then there is Beck's festival of fools this weekend...christ, it's enough to make one think about going postal.

  7. We'll see what we can do Dusty.
