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.


The Sunday Mumbo Jumbo

At least this Third World country is attempting to educate it's people that sorcery is a bunch of bull shit. But not here where the nonsense pervades all facets of our government. How can correct decisions be made if your opinions are bases on pure nonsense as is the case here. Why do they understand the negativity of beliefs like this and we do not? Most people in this country would not have a clue where Benin is. Is it perhaps because they are smarter than us in these matters. I understand they are not talking religion but if what is going on across this country today in catholic churches isn't sorcery then Benny the Rat isn't catholic.


  1. The govt guy sounds just like a teabagger One Fly.

    We have certain theological differences here though.

    I prefer "Benny the Lizard" to "Benny the Rat".

    We may have to agree to disagree on this particular spiritual aspect man!

  2. I can do that and if I step outta the box remind me.

    Also I appreciate your consideration on my nasty attitude about religion.
