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.

Plus He Was A Monsignor

Higher up in the order of priesthood it makes no difference when it comes to the meth.

A former Connecticut priest who was charged in a federal crystal meth case sold the drug out of his Waterbury apartment, as well as the parking lot of an adult specialty store

This man was "granted a sabbatical" as he got hooked while being a priest. At least he only harmed himself but seriously too - where was his god when he needed him more than ever?

  2. We're all human beings who have faults and fail at things. He was not being punished for what ever reason/reasons by the person he prays/prayed to. The fear factor Catholic's use against their children is a crime.

  3. It needs to be said here too that most catholic boys are pressured bu nuns,priests and parents to enter the priesthood. No BS.

  4. Hey, if he was doing meth - that means that maybe those fresh faced choir boys were getting a break...
