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.


Sadistic Beaters With Badges Lose Jobs

After almost two years justice was done a little bit anyway. They should be charged with crimes and have to spend some hard time in the slammer with others just like them.

Cops everywhere beat the shit out of innocents daily and this might not be much but it's something anyway. 


  1. And they Only lost their jobs? I am sick.

  2. Cops don't get fired often and hardly does one give another up.

    And it's not anywhere close to enough. That's why it's something anyway.

  3. You're right. It is an improvement on most previous circumstances.

  4. Not a big cop fan here. Lots of cops worked for me years ago as I owned a bar/disco. So I've seen them at their worst behavior. Most of them that I knew were all above the law. At least that's what they thought. I even had a cop who was drunk,high and god like,shoot a young man to death right in front of my bar. The young mans crime was that he was gay. In this case the bad cop did do time. He made the mistake to have to many witnesses.

  5. Cops need better psychological screening and more training once they're appointed.

  6. I see it on their cars, "To Serve and Protect".

    Who gets served and who gets protected is somewhat suspect.

    I say, "If you can't stand the heat [stress] stay out of the kitchen.

    Maybe "we" should put on "our" cars, "Stop police abuse of taxpayers".

    I'd get behind that...

  7. Hopefully, this young man will file a civil lawsuit against these thugs. Nothing on earth more despicable than a rogue cop.
