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.


Throw These Thugs Out

Do it before they kill or maim somebody because they are stupid and strong and don't care about others. $7,500 bond for intimidating another with a weapon when you are worth millions probably.

Corporate money/corporate influence in sports has been a huge negative on our society except for the 1%.

The pos in question -


  1. When did you add the tattoo thingie? I have a small one I got back in the early 70's. Before, way before they got popular. Why do they even bother with a bond that low??? I think this societies obsession with athletes and movie stars is just ridiculous. It was on the news, last night, that little Suri Cruise cried because she didn't get a puppy...??? That's news??? I have a real problem with the news media...

  2. Just yesterday. We both have a problem then with this. I don't even know who the hell suri cruise is. People around the world laugh at us. We get the news the 1% lets us have and the sheep bleat for more. It couldn't be better.

  3. Shish! These guys make way too much money and get way too much fame and they think they can do anything then.


  4. Just a wonderful photo what a talented photographer.
