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.


Guatemala Starts The Dialog

Knowing full well all the effects of the dynamics of our Empire's war with drugs that the only way out is real dialog about legalization. Guatemala has done just that with their vice president traveling and meeting with other leaders in the area. 

Of course the Empire wants no part of this.


  1. Ahhh...how are you going to be able to leave that beautiful girl this coming winter?


    1. That's why Stretch has to transition to the outside more like she is today. I admit to an attachment. This is a really nice kitty.

    Continuing the war on drugs is the wish and profit for American Corps.
    Legalizing it would make too much sense, and not enough cents.
    Afghanistan is pumping more poppy than ever.
    Mexico, C/&S/ America will be legalizing drugs whether America like is or not.
    The days of the Banana Republics are coming to an end.

  3. I agree RZ. These people do not have the agenda of the 1% here. They are so tired of the shit this country has caused them for years that is getting worse with the only plans the Empire has in store is escalation heading into the 5th decade of failure.

    I hope so much something happens out of this.

    What's sick about it is that you can bet we are doing all we can behind the scenes to see that this idea fails.

  4. The alphabet soups will do all they can to stop it.

    IF the tobacco companies were allowed to grow and distribute reefer, I bet it would be legalized in a minute.
    Sooner or later it will come to that.
