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.


What's A Head For You

Why more of this that's what!

The three suspects wanted in the decapitation of a man in Chandler earlier this month are back in Mexico and the target of an international manhunt, police said Wednesday.

This happened some days ago and I did not see it. It was only a matter of time and more will roll you can take that to the bank.

Is it this - was it that whore writers pound out on their keyboards. Could it be drug related and was a cartel involved. Stupid ass dumb bastards.

There's more coming - it's not going to improve and the violence will get worse.

Repugs and whore dims will want to escalate as is the norm for the last four decades. More troops to the border and build the fence will be the war cry if we enter the dark ages on the 3rd of next month.

I see no hope of sanity entering this equation but the answer is -


  1. OMG! A friend of mine lives near Chandler and she didn't mention this to me!

  2. Legalization of pot also would help stabilize the Mexican government.

  3. Yes including Mexico

    Nice to see you libhom

  4. There's too many many people making mega bucks for the "Drug War" to called a failure. Both sides of the divide are quite happy with it going on and on and on. . . .

  5. The "war" against drugs will never work or win. What a waste!
