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.


Atheists Get Mad At God - Say What !!??

Surveys and studies about getting mad at the one who is everything there is to be. The one that made all that is around us. The one who is the most wondrous of all. Even though he kills believers loved ones in various nasty ways - anger is present but he is forgiven as he can do no wrong you see. All this sounds peachy if you are into nonsense but this was very special indeed.

What a bunch of bullshit. Like I'm going to get angry at something I never believed in except for the very beginning of childhood when there was nothing else or no other choices. Probably about five the curtain was  raised and showed the charlatans behind the brightly colored robes these men wore. They didn't get me -they never will.

Yea I get mad at these mind screwed types who try to push this nonsense onto me and others. You betcha on that.


  1. I read through the article and it seems the survey points out that people are less angry at god as they get older.

    *Newsflash* Older people get less angry - it takes energy. I speak from my own experience. In my twenties I was boiling - now I simmer.

  2. Good one Andy! Thanks for that.
