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.


US + Libya = Torture City

Well no shit Cisco! This ain't news. It was known this country was sending innocents there and to other country's as well to do the bush killers dirty work.

Nobody except some like us gave a shit then and even less could care squat now. Our new Merca continues to be a work in progress.

The Bush administrations sent terror suspects to Libya for interrogation, despite that country's reputation for torture, according to documents found in the abandoned office of Libya's spy chief.


  1. I've always wondered, how does a torturer sleep at night? How does he even live with himself? What kind of "person" becomes a torturer? I want to believe in man's goodness, but it's a real challenge, when all around us we see "man's inhumanity to man."

    Thanks for the train pic. I hope you're having fun with the countdown. :)

  2. Cheeny is out and around, Julian Assange and Brad Manning are the criminals, prisons are biggest employers, murderous war machine makes millions, millions without jobs or homes, children hungry. But never mind - here at the beach it is LABOR DAY WEEKEND and the huge American 4 wheel drive 4 door pickups, fancy welded aluminum offshore salmon boats, rv,s and grotesquely overweight people are in town spending the money exchanged for THEIR votes....I AM HAPPY THAT I AM FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO BE ENJOYING THE FRUITS OF MY LABOR. I GOT OUT 20 + YEARS AGO WHEN THE GETTING WAS GOOD...

    Don't forget to eat your peas - the President said.

  3. Can't help but notice the bad journalism.

    "despite that country's reputation for torture"

    Everybody knows they were sent there BECAUSE of Libya's reputation for torture

  4. What's worse is we're still doing it and they can render us out and do the same to any one of us and there is literally nothing you can do about it.

    This is the kind of government I do not want but the sheep bleat for more.

    In case some one doubts what Onefly said, please read the above link.

    There was chatter about this a few years back.
    Egypt was not the only country that was participating in this.
    A/Q knew this, they were also not happy about Gaddafi's surrender of his weapons.
    A/Q members were/are part of the light brigade charge of Tripoli.
    All these war mongers including many so-called liberals that are cheering on the NATO regime change in Libya, are in for a big effen surprise.

    The financial and intelligence part of it.

    You will not see this on American MSM.

  7. As awful as Kim Jong Il is, is it really hard to understand why he keeps himself armed to the teeth?

    The US message for the world is simple. If you don't have WMD, GET THEM.
