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.


Not In It

From this weekend something only done one time before and that was the first WM Maker movie I did a long time ago until now. Meaning set to music. Didn't remember this song and there are a couple lame areas that may be taken out later but for now left in because the music is so good and incredibly fitting. At least it seems that way now.

  1. Great tune. Fantastic scenery.
    Very mind cleansing.

  2. Glad you got yor mind rght there RZ.

  3. love it.... just friggin love it... i'd love to see more political bloggers do this type of thing like every other week..... i think one of the great things about "our side" (i.e. positive, open-minded, humanistic, neighborly politics) i show much more interesting it is... frankly, i think progpops (progressive populists) flat out live a more rewarding life 9 out 10 times.... i think, and hope, that's because our politics are attached to the realities of life...

    until we change culture we can have little expectation that we'll change society... until we change society we have little chance of making the government OUR civil servant.....

    one struggle,
    --the rev...
    ps (you've really been on fire, recently, man... i've cross posted a few of your posts on facebook... can't tell you how much I appreciate the consistency... )

  4. Thanks OneFly, amazing what has happened in the 6500 years since the Cloud Guy created our home planet. Must be he worked with prototypes for several hundred million years so when he created the current one on the market to big business he had it right with all the ores and oil and stuff ready to be sucked out of the ground at a profit. Only problem I see is where does the future inhabitants move to when they have sucked it dry? All the money in the world cannot replace the solar home we have now. Just sayin'!

  5. Thanks Rev and yesterday there were a bunch of hits coming from BuzzFash. Continue to peck away at your book and you are so correct with this. I will have your video and logo up but I have to finish it first. I can't do it before giving it the complete stamp of approval which it will get but I do have to finish it first. I'm on it-giv'em hell!!

  6. No shit Russ-I look at the new home built around here and the words "passive solar" seem to have gone the way of the dodo bird.
