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.

"I heard wails of pain, screams of agony,"

I bet they did. What the hell did you think was going to happen? In the other life I could toss around in my hands pretty damn hot pieces of metal without getting burnt. That was because they were tough from years of work and not from a keyboard.

People can't think on their own. They want to believe sooo badly. No amount of motivation by the likes of someone such as this Robbins fellow would ever convince this guy his lily white and sensitive feet could ever withstand a walk on hot coals.

  2. Remember the Sedona sweat lodge incident??? People died... That one really pissed me off! These "leaders?" take something from a different culture, add $$ value to it, promise riches/whatever, and idiots follow. I can't believe there are so many followers??? boggles my mind.

    1. It seems that the "wanna believe so bad" types is a by product of everything else if that makes any sense which I doubt.

  3. Shame on Tony Robbins for allowing people to try this. Shame on the people who tried it for thinking it matters.

    That is one great header photo and, somehow, it seems so appropriate.

    1. People want to be something else and willingly give money to people like this. Keep that match away damn it!

      Please tell me what you see in the picture.

    2. It's hard to put into words, but there's something about the fragility of the insect and the harsh barbed wire that reminds me of this news story. It's an interesting juxtaposition between the real world and the man-made one.

      The colors are wonderful and it's so sharply defined, I feel as though I'm right there.

  4. Got it and thank you TE. I realized the barb wire part of the picture. It was unlike any other fly pictures. The picture was put up before the story.

    I got quite few other decent ones and it was a hard choice. It was manipulated a little bit but it did look as it appears.

    It is too what you see as well.

    1. Like Cujo says it does work. I guess if you want a chance of getting burnt on the bottom of your feet you walk on hot coals.

  6. Oddly, this trick usually works. The coals have to be burned pretty well, and the feet of the people who do the walk have to be dry. Believe it or not, moisture retains the heat of the fire. It's all about heat per unit area per unit time.

    Here's a link with more links (eventually).
