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.


Just What In The Hell Would They Do??

If only we actually had a say in how our money is used and said no to much of this. Me dreaming about this "if" changes nothing. A very sobering piece below.

Sales from the 44 US-based companies featured accounted for over 60% of all arms sales by the top 100 producers in 2010, with Lockheed Martin topping the list at $35.7bn (£22.4bn) worth of arms sales in 2010.

Life must be good for those above. They make life good for the ones who vote to send them my dollars for a war machine I do not want. People aren't buying shit and won't anytime soon. We have a war machine economy and looking for more while the Chesters tell those on the Hill just how things are going to be done.


  1. And someone just HAD to shoot at the bulls eye, didn't they?! Grrrrrr


  2. Yes they did. Overall in IMHO in Dinosaur there is little of this though.

  3. Very impressive the petroglyph site as seen in your header!

  4. It sure is Duta. There are more over at the picture place
