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.


Repug Twit Wants Peace Corps Out Of China

Oh mercy - the yellow ones are being taught English the universal language. There must be demands made to bama to get them out now!

The Peace Corps has always played a teaching role wherever they are and it's just that simple.

Ya know it's kinda like fostering friendships and relationships between people and country's instead of invading and killing.

Peace monkey!


  1. You put it very well : teaching the language/culture and fostering friendship ties, instead of invading and killing.

    This is what the americans and others should do in a foreign country, sort of "Make love not War".

  2. Hi Duta-always enjoy your contribution!! Thanks.

    I made a comment on the article at the post and got hammered by several. There are so many imbeciles who live here I tell you.

    We have become a nation of hater/bigots and war mongers.

    911 is coming and the assine patriotic bull shit has been ongoing for the last few weeks.

    I will not wave the flag that now only represents those things I just wrote -never!

  3. A lot better than them sending missionaries over here to teach us Mandarin.
