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.

Imagine

It's not that one but this -

CHINO - A large fight broke out between dozens of parents Saturday at a Jr. All American football game at Ayala Park and officers donned riot helmets to deal with the combatants."We only had our helmets on for our protection because when you get a call of a fight between two and three hundred people, you want to be protected," said police Sgt. Frank Mena.No one was seriously injured during the fisticuffs, and most of the battling parents ran off as officers made their way into the park, Mena said.

Aside from the fact it was a kids game that the adults present and there were a lot of them could not control their anger over a stupid ass competition that means little really. Then everyone runs like rats when the sirens wailed I'm sure was the scenario.

Not meant to be funny but I'm glad no one pulled out guns. I'd pay to know how many were packing. Probably very few. So they say more guns is the answer.

I don't think so. Never did and won't.

  1. That's the fundamental problem with gunners: their understanding of human nature is way too benign.
