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.


Mile Hi Fraud - There's Going To Be Some Screaming Going On Here

You dumb shits! This pisses me off too and I'm sure for different reasons. Repugs/baggers will want to get rid of "welfare" as a whole of course and this gives them more excellent fodder for that cause. Why in the hell was the barn door left open? And get this - it's perfectly fine to use this card at a titty bar.

We need government without question. Why does it always have to get to a point like this before something gets done. Someone needs to be shit canned and changes made quickly so people can have some faith that government can adapt and work better. The right wing propagandists dream of these things. It don't get much better unless it's about Clinton's pecker.


  1. Because these debit cards are not tied to a personal account, they can be whacked for all the fees we remember from before Dodd-Frank. That is why the banks are pushing states to use cards like they previously used checks. States are using them for welfare, unemployment even tax refunds where there is no account for direct deposit. And putting controls on the cards is "too expensive" for the banks. The right wingers really won't complain as long as there is a profit to be made from accessing the cards.

  2. The wingers who benefit laugh all all the way to the bank they own.
