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.


I Want One Too Or The Empire Is In Decline

China is kicking our ass the way the Raiders kicked Donkey ass last weekend.

I may be completely wrong here but it seems many of our innovations come in the area of weapons that cost huge amounts of dollars. We are good at that and would never argue that point. As a country we don't have anything close to this and for so long we were the leader of innovation on a variety of things. Long gone for a long time and she ain't coming home.

If what the whore pundits and media says about the election is correct  anyone who votes for these Regressives thinks there's a train gonna come and pick you up in your neighborhood and take you anywhere well---

  7. China has 20% of it population now ranked in the middle class.
    In ten years it will be 40% that will be in the middle class.
    They are building their own consumer base and an Asian consumer base.
    This way they will be less dependent on our non existent consumer base.
