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.

Catholic Sinners Get Out Of Hell With The Internets

Kill someone-rape a child-cheat on the wife or what have you. Pick up your I Phone and in a matter of just a couple of minutes you're free to start all over again and you didn't even have to come close to the black robe who dispenses the punishment through a curtain of BS.
Something tells me this is not true and if it is all I can do is shake my head.
 
A Confession app for the iPhone which allows users to confess their sins and provides guidelines for the sacrament, has been approved by the Catholic Church in Britain and the United States, reports the BBC. A spokesman for the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales told the BBC that :” The Church believes in embracing new technology and this creative app will hopefully help people to make a good confession”. The $1.99 a pop app allows users to go through the sacrament and keep track of their wrongdoings. Developer Patrick Leinen of Little Apps told Reuters that :” Our desire is to invite Catholics to engage in their faith through digital technology”.

  1. The app has been misrepresented. Here's an article that explains what it is: http://datinggod.org/2011/02/10/the-deal-with-the-confession-app/

  2. On the fly penance. Since a deplore the catholic church I can only see bad in this. I guess they have to make money as there last bastion of cash would be South America. Once they catch on to the scam, it's adios to the pope.
    Harsh I know...

  3. It just down right strange it seems to me. Was somewhat correct about it not quite being correct gaining that from BE's link.

  4. Read the disclaimer from above. The larger point: Show me one passage from the New Testament that supports the need to confess to another man. Doctrine of Infallibility my ass.
