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 Stroking Guvs For Thumbs Up On Wars Of Choice

So they can say shit like this-

Personally I don't think the DOD needs to send these guys over to our war fronts on my dime. Let the people from their own states pay for it and see if they like it. On the other hand this money is not being used to send drones to kill innocents either.

And you can bet none of these guys will say "We need to get the hell out of this part of the world now!!" and say it with conviction and non-stop.


  1. Morning amigo. To be completely frank, I'm not certain it would come out any differently if it were put to a referendum and popular vote.

    But nobody's taking any chances on it by trying.

    Really like the pic this morning.

    Great one to you.

  2. Morning to you too Jules!

    I know but just throw shit like this up out of frustration and I agree with you.

    This picture doesn't show that much and some of it is out of focus but when I looked at it a couple times it was just busy and full of color so I put it up. It's fun damn it. Don't let the coons get ya.

  3. Very Much The Same As Here In The UK."No Money" for the poor and needy..but still plenty when it comes War!

  4. That's what the corporations and the rich want and it ain't changing Tony.

    And the sheep bleat for more.

  5. No money for the poor but plenty for War is what makes us a Christian nation. Remember when Jeebus cast the lepers out of the Temple and washed the feet of the money changers?

  6. They don't talk about that much do they.

  7. Beshear, our governor, declared war on the EPA for daring to question mountaintop removal in Kentucky. Here's a bit of satire you might like.
