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.

Texas Billionaire Dies

I have mixed feelings about this tragedy from I'm sorry to what goes around comes around. But I guess it comes down to I don't want this to happen to me so I don't want it to happen to anyone else either.

Just because a billionaire donates a bit of his massive fortune to a couple half-ass causes does not necessarily make him a good person.

  1. As the article points out, Sam Wyly was a big Republican Party sugar daddy. And what's a 77-year-old doing driving a Porsche anyway?

  2. Because he can I guess. That's a dangerous highway. I was trying to be not so mean about someone who didn't have to die but have little respect for.

    Good morning Fearguth.

  3. When somebody dies one way instead of some other way it tends to be tragic, I reckons. Planet was full of people dying some other ways within a few moments of when he did, so I suppose he must have been kinda special and heart-warmy.

    Likely as not I'll be missing him, though I never heard of him before now.

    Great pic amigo. Good to see you back safe.
