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.


Stopping Cell Service To Curb Dissent

Let's just say the badges will do what ever they want to keep order as they think order needs to be. That's a fact and there is no changing that and no one who will stick up for our rights in DC that has the power to make a difference.

My other 2-cents is this. The Dark One (Cheney) when he would come to Beaver Creek in the Vail valley and when he did cell phone service was stopped for an hour on either side of his planes touch down. Imagine all the people that pissed off but they still loved his killer ass in the enclave that houses the worlds most rich and powerful.


  1. If we ever get to the place where we plan some serious dissent, the first to go will be cell service, then the internet. What happened in
    Egypt can and would happen here. We're not as far from martial law as we want to think.

  2. Exactly Teresa and what's even more scary is that the badges that are sworn to protect us will turn on us like a pack of wild dogs.

  3. Agree with everything here. Keep up the good work One Fly! :0

  4. America the Free(*). U S A! U S A! U S A!
