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.


Simple Minded Badges May Attempt The Obvious

It's the badges who are the criminals here and should be treated as such. So many people have been treated like POS by these thugs in uniforms who carry guns to shoot you with and clubs to beat the shit outta you with as well. They do not care.

Most do not deserve the pedestal they are put on. Common sense says this should be at the top of the criteria list before they toss your innocent ass in the slammer screaming they got the wrong guy.


  1. Absolutely love the new header photo!!!

  2. Sounds like Denver cops would look at your picture and say, "Goddam camels! Time to round'em up!"

  3. Thanks girls.

    It is a bit fuzzy.

  4. I think that back when they actually walked beats, and had to get to know the people they were policing, we had a more humanized police force in a lot of places. And community policing, when practiced these days, still inspires a lot of two-way trust and respect.

    In this Rushpubliscum age of guns, guns, guns, and budget cuts, the more trust the police can inspire in the people, the better it will be for everyone. I'd like to see more of them out of their cars and on their feet, getting to know the neighborhood.
