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.


Air Force Flyboy School Sued For Civil Rights Violations

Good on these staff members for taking a stance on this issue. We know that religion is being forcibly integrated into our armed services branches. They will pay a stiff price I'm sure.

Five faculty members at the Air Force Academy and a religious-watchdog group are filing a civil-rights suit against the academy, saying it is violating the constitutional separation of church and state by sponsoring a National Day of Prayer event and inviting a fundamentalist Christian to speak.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation said Monday the suit has been filed in Denver federal court. The academy is in Colorado Springs. An academy spokesman didn't immediately return a call.
Retired Marine Lt. Clebe McClary is scheduled to speak at the event at the academy Feb. 10.


  1. I don't think there is a separation of church and state in your country any more....Allan

  2. Never would I take a position on the opposite side of that Allan.

    Thank you for the visit and comment! I'll be over your place later.TB
