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.


They're Coming Again

Always the fear factor but there is an answer!

The terrorist organization that was once the scourge of the U.S. occupation in Iraq and likely is responsible for more than 100 deaths in the country over the past few days has set its sights on launching attacks inside the United States, intelligence officials said.

That answer is you hold the bush bastards accountable for their treason. They are the reason for all the deaths in Iraq and others in the area. Most of those were and continue to be innocents just like in "Saudi Aurora". For those of you unaware Saudi Aurora is a common term for Aurora used for decades.

Just for a second imagine all those feelings generated by that incident by say a factor of at least a 1000 (correction - make that 10,000) or so and put yourself in their shoes "over there".

Not many get it. Not even close!


  1. Thank you for saying what I've been thinking.

  2. Humanity and Reality are not allowed on the table when it comes to covering up treason.

    Thank you for being able to "get it".

  3. Unfortunately the securocrats will always have a willing and docile-receptive audience for the scaremongering. We've got the same problem over here. They trot out the same story roughly every four months.
