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.

WTF anyway! The religiously insane are incapable of getting it. This is fine by me. To many this idiot is probably some type of martyr.   

An American pastor who has been jailed in Iran since September has been sentenced to eight years in prison, the U.S. State Department said Sunday.

When you have the American Center for Law and Justice involved then you know the use of the word insane is on target.


  1. Love it! I should post about a young lady that came into the camping department where I was working and told me that god had told her to hike into one of these countries and preach the word... She needed camping/hiking supplies.... hahaha!

  2. Yes you maybe should. I'd read it for sure.

  3. What is an American pastor doing preaching in a Muslim nation? How would evangelicals here in your town of mine react to a group of Muslims handing out copies of the Quran and talking to people about Allah outside the front of your church on Sunday?
    It is bad enough to deal with those old ladies from Johoval Witnesses with copies of the Watchtower every Saturday morning.
    Greet them in you underwear and they won't come back - Don't have a boner on - they might not leave...

    What all of this with the pastor in jail is about is witnessing for Christ. Yes, I know that the Bible says to do so. But, going to a Muslim nation and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ is insanity.

    I hope he likes the food....


    1. He's lucky he didn't get things cut off. This and that in the article about time and transparency plus other nonsense. He was doing just that and deserves no sympathy. Not even just a little bit.

  4. Apparently justice varies from place to place. Am I right? Sure, let's spread that motherfucking Democracy, shall we?

  5. I'm no libertarian anymore but this actually comforts me. Once Upon a Time.
