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.


Tough Shit Arizona

This is what you get when you blatantly show your racism to the rest of the country.

If it hurts real bad that's a double tough shit. The problem is that along the way the little guy got hurt the worst as they can least afford it. The simple bastards who supported this don't even have a clue that they or anyone could be the target of the states various Gestapo agency's.

If I get back to this state I will be very careful where I spend my money. Very careful!


  1. Glad to hear this though I am sure they don't care and call it temporary. Knowing how they are there I was very surprised to hear they passed medicinal marijuana.

  2. Part of it may be that Hispanics got tired of taking care of Snowbirds and bailed, maybe?

  3. Excellent. That will deprive America's largest Nazi (and I am not kidding here; do a little scratching and you'll see for yourself) movement of some needed cash.

  4. There's a bunch of rich low-lifes down there for sure.

    What I take from situations like this is that if our side could come together which it can't we do have the power to cripple in a short time many of the entities that are screwing things up. Our dollars are better than bullets.

  5. Az. and its economy is a joke.
    We lost our business partly due to the racist mentality of Joe Arpaio, and Russel Pearce.
    Many Latinos have left and will never come back.
    Last one out turn out the lights.
