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.


I'll Take El Baradei

You betcha! Over almost every politician in this country.

From Democracy Now 3/10/2003 he slaps the lies for war from the bush regime with a vengeance never seem from big whore media in this country.

As a co-owner of the Nobel Peace Prize he was not out spreading WMD's around  unlike our prez who had just escalated his war in Afghanistan when he got his medal.

I have always admired this man for telling the truth. I hope that has not changed and have no idea how Egypt will turn out but I'm glad this man is there. 


  1. I agree.
    he might not end up being the top guy.
    But he will have a voice.
    Seems that the M/B has given him their backing.
    He has been out of Egypt for a long time.
    But the streets might forgive him for that. :-)

  2. Of course Fly's for El Baradei! It's so easy to say! Rimes!

    So am I!

  3. If that One-Fly-Photo on the mast-head is a Colorado meadow, I'm finding myself wanting to believe that I walked through it 50-60 years ago.

  4. Well maybe you just did Vigil.

  5. As do I.

    I respected him then.

    He was (to me) the smartest guy in the room (and made me ashamed to be an American represented by 'thugs).

    Thanks for all you do!


  6. Full agreement One Fly, his integrity is impressive. He was continually under attack from us for our skirting of the NPT rules.

  7. OF

    Love the new decorations, can't wait to see the drapes and pillows.

    El Baradei has been on tract and is pretty much a NO bullshit guy. Hope they don't take him out.

  8. Well men and Suzan I didn't bring up for a change about taking somebody out but that thought crossed my mind as it did Ano's as well. We don't like this guy because he called us what we were too many times. Liar.
