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.


Living The Nonsense

Turned around to take this because it was too asinine to pass up.


  1. People who really know their Bible would never put up a sign like this. The Parousia (or Second Coming) was something Jesus' disciples and the first Christians devoutly hoped for.

  2. b b b b but they believe so hard they must be correct.

    1. For some reason, I've had a hard time posting comments on your blog. It's probably something I've done on my puter??? Anyway, loved yesterday's blog about the gravy. I can relate...last fall, we drove all the way, out of our way, to go to Durango for a Green Chili Hamburger!!! hahaha... The first thing I'm going to say about today's post is that I find it sooo offensive when people put words their in gods mouth. Oooh gosh...I just find the entire sign offensive...

  3. I found it offensive as well TMoon. poor little mind screwed children that see this crap.

    Blogger is having problems and I am one who is annoyed how commenting has changed but have seen no forums about it so far.

    In addition everyone who had a follower list and stat counter of the kind I had anyway is gone. The gadgets are still there but you can't see them.

  4. The Bible is a collection of stories.

    No different from The Oxford Book of Science Fiction Stories, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare or, Questions from Men and Women to the Advice Column of Playboy Magazine.

    I think and I believe, humans invented Christianity because they were/are afraid of death. A perfectly reasonable fear in my view but, for goodness sake people, it's now the second decade of the 21st century and the Baby Jesus ain't coming back to earth to save our asses.

  5. You guys do not get it.
    I was there the night that those letters appeared on that billboard sign.
    God put them there himself.
    I saw him do it with my own 2 eyes.
    It is a warning to their Pastor and Tele-Evangelicals that he is pissed and when he sends Jesse there will be hell to pay.

  6. I'm not going to sleep good tonight.

  7. You'd think god would be all mad about the war and killing and stuff...

  8. he would be Gene if the media made him mad like they should but of course that will not happen. god works in their own mysterious way.

  9. Aren't those bible thumpers waiting on him to come down to Earth again anyway!

  10. That they are and what a glorious day it will be. They get it all and watch the rest perish or something like that. Perfect if your a crazy ass believer of nonsense.
