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.


If You Think Your President Is a Good Guy - You're Wrong

If you have not seen this short clip maybe it's worth a look. About the same time as Panetta's and the chester's testimony your bama did this.

This man is no friend of mine.


  1. Step by step.
    Be afraid be very afraid.
    What is really scary is that all this is NOT on Americans radar.
    They keep the peeps amused with more bread and circus.

  2. Barry Soetoro has a profound and deep conservative streak and it is found where his spine should be.

    Memba', this is the same cat who as Sen. Barack Obama announced his support for a sweeping intelligence surveillance law that has been heavily denounced by the liberal activists and civil liberty advocates.

  3. But he's sooooooooooo much better than the other guys . . . .


  4. That's what many say and think to everyone's detriment in my opinion.

  5. They just keep inventing laws I feel obliged to break. Meanwhile corporate criminals walk free and appear to have unlimited access to public and political places.
