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.


Talk About Unhappy

Beginning this fall, most elementary schools in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles will add 20 days to their schedules, making their school year one of the longest in the United States.

Poor kids look at 'em. One is wiping away a tear and there isn't a smile amongst them. 20 more days of mind fuckery. There needs to be a law.

Take a look at the robe on the left eyeball'in his next target. Sick fuckers.


  1. That would suck in one of them Schools but I wish the rest of us should get our act together. We are 35ht right there with Poland and how the hell can we compete like that?

  2. And of course we can't Jim but this is where the powers that be want this country. Stupid and poor and mind screwed.

  3. The Catholic schools nowdays don't do much mind fuckery, One Fly. They're just private schools run by regular educators, they don't even have nuns teaching in'em anymore. About the only time the kiddos will see anybody who resembles clergy is during one of the weekly "theology" classes, where non-Catholics aren't required to do anything icky except sit there and listen.

    (who, yes, did interview at a Catholic school, and turned down the job because their pay is even lower than the public schools).

  4. I guess that might be a bit better than what I experienced. The must be fewer nuns than priests.

    We used to get a robe to indoctrinate us almost every day and it sucked big time!

    If you would have gotten that job and prayed real hard the money would have come you see.

  5. If they pray in their schools, they should take 20 more days.

  6. I was in Catholic school for 12 years, I'm with the kid wiping away tears.
