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.


Student Loan Amount Surpasses What Is Owed On Credit Cards

You betcha - it takes a bunch to get a college edukation here in the US. But if you want to learn how to kill not so much.  As with credit card debt those in the District of Whores made sure the debtors would not go free.

Another example of an Empire in a steep decline. And the blind sheep bleat for more reality on the tube. The amount is a trillion the amount the bankers got not that long ago. Of course the ones that profited from that have made sure no little guy never will.


  1. My older son owes student loans and I had no idea what a scam they are and how little oversight there is. And yes, no one can default or declare bankruptcy against them. They also don't guarantee employment as they once might have. It's a national crisis and a national shame. A bigger part of the horrific mess we're in than people realize.

  2. Better framed than I Teresa and explains just how deep were in what ever it is one wants to call it.

    People do not like to hear the negative but the fact and reality of the matter is if anyone thinks those in the DOW's will make the changes needed to correct the inequities would be totally wrong.

    Thank you!

  3. I don't see the problem, the prof's need paid and the football team needs new shoes. Ya take out a loan, you repay it.

  4. To Anonymous: the football team needs new shoes? That's what people are paying tuition for? Sheesh. No wonder the system is screwed up.
