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.

 It's like this folks and there will be just one example used as the possibilities are far too great.

When a country like ours invades and occupies another for lies everything is on the table.  I wouldn't argue against this for a second.  This is the kinda shit this country does. 


  1. Anything is possible, and from what I can tell, probable. Nothing, and I mean nothing, would surprise me.

  2. Remember Martha Mitchell?

    This wife of of John N. Mitchell, US Attorney General under President Richard Nixon? Martha Mitchell was notorious for calling the media and talking to reporters.

    After the Watergate break-in scandal, Martha Mitchell told about her husband's role in the scandal. She became known as "the Mouth of the South."

    She said she had been held against her will in a California hotel room and repeatedly injected with something her captors said was cancer cells.

    She succumbed to cancer a few years later.

  3. I believe in all the conspiracy theories except the one's involving aliens.

  4. Hold it there Mickey. Many thought the chimp was one ya know.

    The thing about conspiracy theories is that explanations given aren't very good sometimes. Everybody remember the magic "one bullet found on a stretcher'?

    I do remember that now Christopher. There are so many things loke that to forget about. It seems there are more of the bad things like that than good things. Or is that way off base because of my notorious shitty attitude?

  5. I do remember Martha Mitchell.

    The only thing I don't like about conspiracy theories is I really, really want to know the truth because I'm curious. And I want to know it now (I'm not patient).

    My Aunt Sharon would say Chemtrails caused the cancer.
