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.


Simple Twit Kills Self Eating Roaches

This is news in the Empire. So maybe we are supposed to feel compassion and say how sorry we that this happened. I don't think so. Two other words come to mind - dumb ass! And because he wanted to win a python. Yup that makes it all add up the right way.

After downing more than 20 giant creepy-crawlies, Archbold vomited, collapsed and died. The grand prize has been put aside in his name and will be given to his estate.

  1. Maybe he should have smoked them. :)

  2. Dry 'em out. Grind 'em up. Fire something up and take big hits and I bet you can get off one way or the other.

  3. I think he won a Darwin award.
    Pretty kitty.

  4. Any thing that moves is not safe.

  5. The gene pool is a little cleaner now.

  6. The allergy thing is the only thing that makes sense, since these particular cockroaches are a common food item in many places in the world. Heck, I know someone who's eaten them before, he's a Marine and that was part of his training. He said he tries not to remember the taste but when you're hungry enough you'll eat anything :).
