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.


16 Year Old Kills Grandparents

This is the second time in less than a month a teenager has murdered family members on the eastern plains of Colorado. It's not official but he did it no question.

So far religion has not been mentioned and I don't think it plays a role this time. There was a huge sum of money in the pickup this kid crashed. Teenagers killing family members not once but twice in the span of one month in the same area doesn't add up. What the hell is going on out there??


  1. How bad was his home life that his 80 something great-grandparents had temp. custody? Too many kids out there that are very angry. For some, violence becomes a way of life. Beyond sad and troubling.

  2. Plenty of blame can be thrown around in these cases for sure. And this is out in the middle of nowhere and I also understand there isn't a nowhere anymore.

    I think it's also fair to say it will not get better anytime soon.

  3. http://newsdeskinternational.wordpress.com/2011/03/24/kentucky-teen-kills-guardians/ Another case fro KY, my home. Evil is sometimes just evil.

  4. Probably a combination of nothing behind you, nothing to look forward to, and a ready supply of weapons.

  5. Real special Cletis and it seems this time the kid got pretty much whatever he wanted and it still wasn't good enough.
