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.


New Kid On The Block In Afghannystan

They call it the "Punisher" and not only that it's a "Game-Changer" to those in the business of war and killing even better than what we have now.

It's a 1000 smacks for a round of ammunition that will go down to $35 when they start producing them in numbers.

OTC says that's real fucking nice-can we come home now.


  1. We've been there so long, they're now calling it 'Afgrannystan'.

  2. Now we have to stay until this has been proved in battle. Personally tested in combat by the fool that gave it the name Punisher. Just don't expect the price per round to come down, that price is too good to let go.

  3. It's about time we had another sequel to The Punisher.

  4. By any chance do you mean the movie with that Dolf guy named the Punisher??

  5. I hate the pet names the give these weapons. It's a mental ploy to make them seem less killer like or something like that.

  6. Thomas Jane played the Punisher in the original, Ray Stevenson in the sequel.

  7. "I hate the pet names the give these weapons. It's a mental ploy to make them seem less killer like or something like that."

    Great comment. Here's an old example from Wikipedia:

    "The Colt Single Action Army (also known as the Model P, Peacemaker, M1873, Single Action Army, SAA, and Colt 45) is a single action revolver with a revolving cylinder holding six metallic cartridges. It was designed for the U.S. government service revolver trials of 1873 by Colt's Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company, today Colt's Manufacturing Company, and adopted as the standard military service revolver until 1892."

  8. I think you and I should be put in charge of naming these things Cletis.
