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.


The Stench Of Hypocrisy Is Overwhelming

If you've not seen this it's worth a couple minutes. You have Secretary of State Hillary Clinton talking about how bad the "violence against protesters" over there in Egypt and Iran is while Ray McGovern get the shit beat out of him as he stands with his back to the podium in silent protest. You bastards! We are so screwed.


  1. If they will treat Ray McGovern in this fashion, just imagine what they would do to you and me.

  2. What's worse is that they all know this man and knew before hand they were going to rough him up if he even looked at someone the wrong way.

  3. just shows what happens when someone joins the CIA and tries to leave the CIA, membership for LIFE! like it or not.

    The would shoot, stuff and dispose of us in minutes if need be.

    How do you think Obama feels about knowing? Once you know, your in... and once you know there is no getting out!

  4. Remember, Citizen, this is a free country. You're perfectly free to exercise free speech as long as you do it someplace where nobody who doesn't agree with you can hear or see you, places such as on this blog. Do it in a public place where you might possibly expose other citizens to ideas new to them? Heresy! Prepare to be processed, citizen! (Anybody else find it amusing, in a Kafka-ish sort of way, that cops refer being printed and placed into a jail cell as being "processed"? Hmm, Soylent Green?).

    The United States is the largest and most vicious police state on the planet, with more people in prison and more lives destroyed via being "processed" in the system both in absolute terms and relative population than any other nation on the planet. It amuses me that people like Hillary Clinton continue to spew hypocritical bullshit as if she lived in a free country, when we have a very efficient and effective police state here at home that kills just as many people as the Bahrain one... except most of them are, of course, kinda dusky lookin' fellers or they're poor (ooh ick, keep away, everybody knows that being poor is like having cooties and if you treat a poor person like a human being you might catch it yourself!), so they don't count, right? Right?

  6. Well.... YES! And has been for quite some time. Ever wonder why the U.S. doesn't celebrate Labor Day on May 1 like the rest of the world? Google "Haymarket Massacre" and be informed!
