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.


Kissing Ronnie's Dead Bony Ass In The Cornfield Tonight

They'd probably chew on them given the chance and then howl at the moon while getting wood. Sorry - just can't make it.

I stop at a lot of cemetery's and try to be as respectful as I can. If given the chance to view this mans hole in the ground and thought I could get by with it well it might just get pissed on.


  1. Speaking of Saint Reagan, did you see where four, presumably wealthy donors funded the construction of a Reagan-like statue and erected it at the entrance of National Airport in Washington DC?

    The monstrosity was reported to have cost $900,000. It's a very Soviet-looking thing.

    Seriously, the day is coming when some nitwit in Congress will try to get his monkey-mug added to Mt. Rushmore.

  2. No I did not and I just saw it and it's as you say.

    I'll piss all over that too if I ever get a chance. That one and the other three around the world as well. In fact some rich lefty should fund my effort of pissing on all of the Ronnie statues. A first and very appropriate gesture of what this guy stood for.

    They already tried the Rushmore thing I believe.

  3. Crap, they might as well infect Ronnie's corpse with the zombie virus and bring him back up and run him for President again. Oh sure, he'd always be wanting brains. But that gives Zombie Ronnie one up on the current slate of GOP candidates, who neither have brains, nor *want* them.
