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.


When They Talk Like This You Know What's Coming

The President said today-
"In order to arrive at a compromise I am prepared to do some very tough things that some Democrats don't want to see and probably a few Republicans don't want to see either."

Simply it's called a screwing. Not here yet but it was never going to be any other way.  When proven wrong will say so.  Watch it happen. We should not have to give a damn thing.


  1. O was, is, and always will be center right.

    This chained CPI is only the beginning.

    Social Security has NOTHING to do with the deficit.

    I have said from the beginning, let them go over the so called cliff.
    Yes some people will suffer.
    But no deal is better than a bad deal.
    The only way to cut the war department was to go over the cliff.
    We can not afford capitalism any longer.
    There is a better way.

  2. Nothing: Maybe communism is the answer

  3. How about we get the money out first.

  4. $.46 on the dollar and then you get to add in what you pay the state, then the county, then the city. And in our case the ditch company. What do we get to have to live on?!?!?

  5. We the middle class should have to give NOTHING to the 1%.

    This is not going to be good.
