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.


Many Questions Will Be Asked

A bit ago looked at the "news" out of Aurora. Big Whore Media will be all over this endlessly with their drivel of how and why asking the same stupid ass questions that do nothing but promote their own agenda of peddling their bull shit without an attempt of any opinion or possible remedy's of this tragedy.

I will throw a couple whys out there and it ain't pretty but when you get squat from most everywhere else something is better than you get from the Big Whores.

This country has severe societal problems that cannot be fixed.

These issues (if you do not have a clue about what they would be then move on outta here because you are in the wrong place) are  part of the result of corporations and their profit margins that must be met at all cost.

The marketing aspect and how it has changed in a huge way values we once had. Tennis shoes and phone more important than education for instance.

The integration of religion into government with the nonsensical rhetoric used as fact in discussions that need reality based conversations to implement positive change.

Big Whore media who uses yours and my airwaves was to educate as part of that deal as well. The 1% own that and they do nothing for our society but propagandize the issues for their benefit.

Why oh why will be the cry. We are in deep deep shit people and very few have a clue.

What's just as sad about this is there is worse coming down the tube.

  1. Prepare for the political lip service.
    Remember Tucson ?
    Couple of days, and all was forgotten.
    Same will happen here.
    The repugs obey the NRA, and the dimwits are intimidated by the NRA.
    The dog and pony show will continue.
    Perhaps there is a magic number of deaths before they get serious about this.
