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.


Secretary Saladbar To Dedicate New Dinosaur Visitor Center / The Real Story You'll Not See Elsewhere

As you know I've been hanging out here a bunch and want to explain what really happened with this dedication and opening.

On Sept. 28, Salazar will be the keynote speaker at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new 7,595-square-foot visitor center.

Note the date of Oct. 4 as that was the planned opening date that never changed. What Saladbar tried to pull was bull shit. 300+ invitations were sent and all the other things that needed to be done were in preparation. This is a big deal folks I tell you. People who work there are fired up and rightfully so. This is going to be soooo cool. You have the best people in the world working on things like this.

Salazar after the fact wanted the opening to be changed to suit him. It couldn't be so he had to be accommodated for his photo op on the 28th and make it seem like this was the plan all along. Nobody will hardly be there and it will a lot more extra work on the part of many to get this done.

Kenny boy is a wheel now. A sheepherder to the Secretary of State for the USA. Anyway you know what dogs do to wheels.


  1. I love the design of the building. It blends in nicely with the surroundings.

    As for Salazar, let it never be said that politicians don't have egos that get in the way sometimes. Wouldn't be the first time one at that level had to be reminded "You do know this is a tight schedule, right?"

  2. He's just like bama.

    This new building looks a lot like the old one. Also they will run a shuttle up to the old building where as I understand it they have put some type of catwalk in front and closer to the "wall of bone" as I call it. This should be something. I won't get to see it this tear but plan on coming back to do so.
