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.

This Oughtta Learn Him

You betcha! Many have been screwed by mandatory sentencing laws and not saying this guy was. They do have their place but common sense needs to be part of the process which many badges/prosecutors do not have.

  2. He did commit real crimes and after 8 additional bank jobs, can be said to enjoy his work. It's not like he is facing life for a third strike of petty shop lifting.

  6. At least they won't even have to pretend to offer him job training for some other vocation, if he serves his full sentence that is. And I wonder why someone who robs a bank from the bottom side, for a pittance really, gets such a huge sentence in comparison to the CEOs who rob it for a fortune from the top side and get bonuses for their work. It cracks me up that they can say, "I didn't do a very good job, the bank lost billions." Well, yes, they did a great job. They "misplaced" billions and no one is throwing them in jail for it. Wonder what they're all doing with all that money they misplaced? Building a space colony? Preparing for the end of the earth? Why else would anyone need so much money?

    1. If only they could receive just a bit of accountability the world would be a better place.
