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.


Da Bokmon Woman

Yup she won in the battle of who's the most desirable of the deranged in Ames. She's a darling alright amped up on what she can find in the medicine chest of the dummy's who love her sorry ass. No matter if she doesn't have an idea how things will function after most guvmint is shit canned except for our military that remains of course to protect our freedoms ya see.

This is where we are at and what many want for the new direction our country is headed. It's embarrassing to say that I'm from the corn state. These people many of them anyway are not thinking too good. Smelling too much pig shit this time of year. It's very nasty out in that cornfield when it's so hot and humid the stink permeates the air and can make people downright nauseous. That must be it.

I can't understand how these people can not see much of world around them and the things used in their daily lives are because of and done by the government.

I'm headed back home. I need to start packing.


  1. Your comment about Iowa reminds me of this exchange from Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome ---

    Aunty Entity: We call it Underworld. That's where Bartertown gets its energy.
    Max: What, oil? Natural gas?
    Aunty Entity: Pigs.
    Max: You mean pigs like those?
    Aunty Entity: That's right.
    Max: Bullshit!
    Aunty Entity: No. Pig shit.
    Max: What?
    The Collector: Pig shit. The lights, the motors, the vehicles, all run by a high-powered gas called methane. And methane cometh from pig shit.

  2. My guess is that Iowa's educational institutions were the first to go under Raygun's deregulation (home schooling anyone?), and this is what we're left with in the intelligence dept. out there.

    People who think funding the military is all we need to remain secure.

    Cause they learned all they needed to know from Mr. Drysdale.

    Love ya, baby!


  3. And when it gets spread on the fields everyone gets to share. Many say it's the smell of money. I say it's the smell of pig shit.

    It's like the days of old when man lived with his animals in the same room or building. When you have these amounts of numbers many times in close proximity to homes it is the same thing.

    I'm glad I got the education I did Susan and it was pretty decent. No way can it be the same oir as good today.
