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.


Ludlow And The Hate

It was a bit different back in 1914 but also a lot the same. One thing that remains totally intact is the hate. The powerful hate so much they kill and in this case two women and 11 children were massacred at the hands of the guvmint. Wiki Link.

The ones on the other side are outraged and their hate gushes out. I'm pissed and have written many times that I "hate ". There is a difference in that I wish no harm come but these people worry me. What makes it difficult to swallow is they base their beliefs and intensity for them on known falsehoods mixed as well with god nonsense.

OTC supports all unions in this current struggle and understands the risk many take to express their support for the right to organize. The Professional Left has an excellent podcast on unions from 2/25.
