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.


Achtung Achtung It's A DEA Warning

Yup there's a run on bath salts and people are getting high --- I mean sick it seems.

Yup and you can legislate any and everything but it don't mean squat as people will find another substance to get loaded on it's just the way it is.

These dumb shits here in this case want to ingest bath salts in various ways knock yourself out. After all who am I to take your freedom away to do so and to prove to all just how stupid you are.


  1. Sounds like the same side effects from taking Cialis.

  2. We have come a long way from smoking banana peels. No improvement, mind you, just a long way.

  3. I admit to the corn silk but never even thought about banana peels.

  4. "They call it Mellow Yellow (quite rightly)."

  5. Just give them a Darwin award and bury them

  6. You smoked that shit didn't you Fearguth?

  7. Fraid not. It was mostly just a rumor. Cool song, though.
