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.


In Support Of

Going to participate in this today. It's a long way but statements have to be made against these people who want to take more from the middle class.

This has to be done in person no question about it..

It's simple actually - the rich and the military have all the money not us. Go there to get it. Look at the graphs. They don't lie.

  1. So you are in favour of anarchy, because that's what it looks like in Wisconsin. OK then, Egypt, Lybia, and now it starts in USA.
    Good Luck!

  2. To frame it in those words that I am in favor of is a very bad choice Duta.

    We need something other than luck - the truth would help nicely if we could get a bit of that from the right.

    That's not going to happen.
