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.


And On Our Northern Front

It's difficult to keep track of things and I do not recall recent pieces about the Empire's efforts with the decades old bogus Drug War along the Canadian border. Just saw this and it's alive disturbing and doing ever so well. Drones,cameras whatever they have on the southern front is here as well. Won't ever be going too close to this border either. From bama -

Thanks bud you're a real pal pedaling the bullshit myths about marijuana and continuing the crazy. The numbers cited are staggering and is evidence alone why it should have been stopped long ago. It wasn't then and it won't ever be now.


  1. From Canada? Weed? This is what Barry's crew is claiming? ROFLMAO!

    Here in California, north of Marin County is Mendocino, Humboldt, and Trinity counties. These are largely rural, sparsely populated counties once popular with folks who want to live off the grid and retirees.

    Nowadays, Mendocino, Humboldt, and Trinity counties are infested with Mexican drug cartel pot growers. Media reports say half of all the pot sold in the USA is grown in these three counties and the profits go back to the Zetas in Mexico. The area is now the target of the Feds and the violence is growing.

    I was unaware the California counties of Mendocino, Humboldt, and Trinity are in Canada.

  2. I would think the US is a more serious drug threat to Canada than they are to us. Oh, I forgot, we ARE the only country in the world we care about. All evil comes from elsewhere.

  3. This kinda caught me by surprise. They have to say something because it's not stopping. Face it guys there is literally 0% chance that this policy will change to what we want for better. 0 chance - now and for a very long time if ever and that is a sad fact. Seriously do you agree with that or am I very wrong?

  4. I think it's more simple that that. It isn't politically correct to criticize Mexico in any way, shape or form.

    Drug cartel violence was largely ignored by the US State Department for nearly a decade before dozens of Americans were kidnapped or killed before US State finally issued warnings to Americans who planned to travel to Mexico to avoid at all costs.

  5. The biggest drug threat from Canada are all the geezers bring back the prescription drugs they bought there at vastly reduced prices.
