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.


Bama Says

President Barack Obama says the growth of the U.S. economy will depend in part on training new workers for jobs in the manufacturing industry.
And this-
"Right now, there are people across America with talents just waiting to be tapped, sparks waiting to be lit. Our job is to light them. And there's no time to lose when we've got folks looking for work, when we've got companies that need to stay competitive in this 21st-century economy," he said.

Fly says this-
BULLSHIT! This country shipped those jobs out of the country long time ago and is still doing it. The only thing for the most part people are being trained for is flipping shitty tasting burgers and other mushy meats that taste like shit as well. That and scrubbing toilets. Don't believe this for a second.


  1. Obama should be sending Congress every possible job program, no matter how liberal or conservative, as long as it doesn't include tax cuts. The Republicans would not give him any, but if he was loud and proud of his efforts he could make the Republicans look very, very bad.

    That's what he should do if he were a Democrat.

  2. Ain't that no shit!

  3. Anon:
    "if he were a democrat".
    Spot on.

    This is all lip service.
    O can not win re-election on the economy.
    If any thing it will be worst by then.
    He will have to run as a war president.
    A position he is very comfortable at.
    He is a war of choice president.
    Now it looks like we are bombing Yemen.
    Libya was a total regime change agenda for the West.
    Beware of false flags before the election.
    Either abroad or in America.

  4. I agree with Reality Zone's view.
    In fact, I'm beginning to think that american presidents seek action (war) outside (Vietnam, Irak, Aganistan, Libya)to justify their election, because they're unable to solve any major problem inside their country.

  5. That is an excellent observation there Duta and of course the corporations need to be greased as well on a continuing basis.
