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.


A Warning For Women - Swine Producers And Humans

Actually the warning should include anything that's breathing. We're talking the drug called Matrix that controls the breeding cycle of pigs.

And that ain't all! Can't pee no problemo dude.

He better not spill any drug on exposed skin because it can cause “instantaneous urination,” said Doug Davis, a pig farmer who advises 4-H members on swine projects.

Instantaneous pissing - WTF anyway?? And pumping drugs like this and hundreds of others as well into the meat we eat  doesn't have consequences.



  1. Well, that is scarier than Allen West (I see Communists)Going back to being a vegetarian. Wait- Monsanto screwed with corn, too. Only safe if you know who grows it.

  2. I'm with Christopher! The FDA only helps big-Ag increase their profits :(

  3. I agree. But on to the header....what and where and I looking upon. What is the the yellow....car lights?


  4. The sun just came up and that is a train taken from the deck. I need to try to get lucky some more and be in a different location so like that electric pole isn't in the middle. It was pretty impressive actually and is all about the angle of the sun. That may not happen again like that in that particular place.
