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.


The Facts About Your Rights With The Defense Bill

If you have not watched Cenk then and have questions about what exactly this government and this administration can do and where they are really coming from then watch this. Now the men in green with the guns can take us away as well no questions asked.

It's important to note what the bama and his minions were pissed off about was that they did not want any of their power inherited when elected taken away. That's what the veto threat was about - not protecting our rights.

This prez is one of them without question.


  1. Barack Obama is far more dangerous than was George W. Bush.

    Here's what Tom Malinowski of Human Rights Watch had to say about Obama insisting "indefinite detention" is added to the Defense Authorization bill:

    “It’s something so radical that it would have been considered crazy had it been pushed by the Bush administration. It establishes precisely the kind of system that the has consistently urged other countries not to adopt. At a time when the United States is urging Egypt, for example, to scrap its emergency law and military courts, this is not consistent.”

  2. If anyone with any brain cells at all thinks for a second that after the election it will better you would be as looney as the bagger bastards running for prez!
