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.


What Is It That Cops Priests And Mormons Can't Get

Lets be clear and say there are plenty others that can be added to the list. It might be different other places but we're not there. Here it is the norm that adults do not have sexual relations with minors. As a society we just can't get that. This badge paid with his life for being a low life deviate predator.


  1. I thoroughly detest cops. I have mo use for them. I've seen first hand how they violate the law and how our culture elevates them to the status of sainthood.

    When was the last time you saw a jury come back with a 'guilty' verdict in the prosecution of a cop?

    It's rare. I simply don't understand it.

  2. It is a little strange that they didn't wait until the shift change. What urgency was there? Sure he has to obey the law but she was 17 and he was probably in his 20's. Your normal offender is allowed to surrender to police accompanied by his lawyer. Too much unanswered here.

  3. One of the reasons so many do not trust them or like them is that they lie and a lot.

    No shit - why arrest this fellow while on duty and when he has a weapon on him.

    There is more going on here.

  4. I love your header! What stories that house/home could tell.
