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.


10 Smacks A Month For Student Debtors

Update: To be fair this is an example of savings from bama's office just out. As with most pieces about this every one is full of a lot of numbers and statistics. They tell you all this stuff except how they and then you can arrive at that same number which in this case is a $451 dollar savings per month much different than $10. I gotta go with the ten. 

 Sorry folks this is an insult. The cost of education rose dramatically as our love for war did as well. Not only are we forced to finance war with taxes we pay in other ways as well and this is one of them. Most everything the DC people do is.

  1. Good grief. I am so tired of this bullshit. How can he go out and campaign with any sense of decency, knowing that we know just how hollow this offering is, along with that supposed increase in social security which will really just serve to increase taxes for many and back into the gov't coffers it goes....

  2. Seriously Teresa I'm not sure where this stands.

  3. They Always Find Money For War.......
