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.


Enough Of The Stupid

A bus driver saw a mountain lion three blocks away from school so what do you do as it's time for the special kids from Golden to head home. Well ya lock them in the building and keep 'em away from the windows ya see.
These cats must have keys and know how to use them.

Yea you want to protect the kiddies but no mountain lion is going to attack anyone in the wide open in front of a school building. In addition the authorities couldn't find the cat. Well they're kinda like that ya know.  

Click on the link below if you care to know what the schools mascot is. Oh you figured it out already.   


  1. How stupid is that, I guess that is the abundance of caution we keep hearing about.

  2. For the most part I don't think there was any danger whatsoever. I think it's part of teaching that we must fear so much so when told to fear something even later in life it becomes natural to do so. They don't even know about their own mascot and habits.

  3. So their mascot came to make a call? Ha!

  4. Here is another local HA that is actually a ha ha. We're better. Another reason so many are so stuoid.
