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.


2nd Grade Monster Gets Ass Pepper Sprayed

I understand how special this kid must be and this seems a bit extreme. However maybe in the future this little shit will think twice before behaving like this again. What if he had brought a gun from his parents house who taught him the values he showed with these actions.


  1. Back in the day I got a little bit of the training that cops get. One of the things that stuck out for me was this: Don't mess with someone who has a knife. Knives aren't a laughing matter. Knives *kill*. And a sharp piece of wood torn off the wall ain't much different from a knife.

    Frankly, the kid is lucky they didn't just shoot his violent ass. Unfortunately, given the enabling mother (look, if *I* had misbehaved like that at eight years old, the school would have called my father, and he would have turned me over his knee right there in the principal's office and whipped my ass with his belt until I was a sobbing heap, and you betcha I woulda never done *that* again, much less *three* times like this kid did!), it's likely that the cops are gonna see a lot of this kid over the years...
