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.

Condoleezza Rice (the last time that name is used) aka Kinda Sleazy as she is known here probably will be the center of attention again.

I despised and still do how media distorts her name and uses Condi which implies some sort of association. It comes across to me as one of friendship and goodness if that makes any sense. It's more of a positive name than a negative not that her proper name is a bad one. It's actually very interesting but it is her name. It's wrong and creates a false impression of this person

Make no mistake about it! This women is a war criminal and committed treason along with all of the rest of the bushes. She was one of top liars on WMD's and Iraq.

Again OTC will never assist in the rewriting of history and those involved who took us to war on a "pack of lies" in Iraq.

Kinda Sleazy has not been treated well here but none of these people ever will be.

We are and will continue to pay the price for their treason.

She will be loved by many.


  1. Riding on the train we can feel no pain

    We are taking the grandchildren on a train ride (Tallen our youngest WANTS to ride a train...really wants to ride a train) So we will go from Grand Junction to Glenwood Springs on a
    train ride.


  2. Way to go Tallen. I'm jealous. I wanna go to.

    The last train I was on was from Bobo-Dioulasso (Bobo)to Ouagadougou (Wagga) in what was then Upper Volta.

    Have toooo much fun.

  3. Condi is a woman and a Lamanite, she is just a diversion from his tax troubles.

  4. I agree, they need to change the news cycle.
    Condi is a head fake. Waaaay toooo much baggage.
    Pawlenty will get the nod.
    Lets see who the real out sourcer will be if/when they pass the TPP Trans Pacific Partnership.
    If you did not like NAFTA, who will hate TPP.
