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.


Calderon Understands And bama Of Course Tows The Corporate Line

Over 50 massacred and this is just the latest.

The President (not ours) called these killers "true terrorists" and he's correct. Just like killers here who are not terrorists but really are ya know.

A visibly angry Calderon urged the United States to do more to curb demand for illegal drugs and stop weapon trafficking into Mexico. "If ... they are resigned to consuming drugs, then they need to find alternatives ... and establish clear points of access different from the border with Mexico, but this situation can't keep going on like this," he said. 

Our big man bama said Friday that the Mexican government and its people are waging a brave fight to disrupt violent transnational criminal organizations and that the U.S. will remain a partner with Mexico in that fight.

Ya mon we're paatners. They don't want to be partners with us. Many do not. Much of the time that means people are going to die. And they do in Mexico a lot and we are the cause.

This kinda shit that's been going for 40 years borders on the insane but this is what Merca wants and this is what we get.

It really sucks. 


  1. When we finally collapse, a lot of this nonsense will come to a quick end.

    Maybe it's time to let it happen.

  2. Mexico will legalize most rugs in the very near future.

    Either a total collapse will happen before the next election, or 2 years after the election.
    An, it will not matter who the president is.

    'rugs" is suppose to be Drugs.
    My [d] is not working too well. :-)
    Smoke em if you got em.

  4. My opinion on drugs is pretty limited, but the only people I know who are on them, or are dealing with them, are on public assistance of some sort. I guess it's kind of hard to get up and go to work in the morning if you're on meth or heroin. So our tax dollars buy the drugs, then we pay to fight the drug wars? How about we all just start keeping ALL of our money? Give me a 24-page form every year with all the major government programs on it, and I'll check off how much I want to DONATE to each of them.
