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.

You betcha! So drunk you fall out of your car trying to spit your tobacky juice out the door and - - -

That sucks no doubt but the good thing is that no one else was hurt.


  1. Drunk as a skunk: Check.
    Chewing tobacco: Check.

    Now, if he happened to be wearing a wifebeater when he was run over by his own car, he'd be a perfect trifeca of the dumbass redneck, yo.

  2. Well, now that is one amazing way to go.


  3. Here's another from today. Talk to any cop who will have a conversation with you and they will tell you that 90% or more of their contacts are alcohol related. What a huge negative this drug is. Like so many things there will not be a discussion about this either. But we punish pot smokers who cause no harm.

    A 29-year-old woman hit and killed by a bus outside Aspen early on New Year's Day had a blood-alcohol level three and half times the legal limit for driving, the Pitkin County Coroner's Office said this evening.
