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.

The First Mumbo Jumbo

Real special too from the Argentinian the biggest robe of all  mainstream catholic believers are hoping will make reforms long sought after. Yea right.

"We can walk all we want, we can build many things, but if we don't proclaim Jesus Christ, something is wrong. We would become a compassionate NGO and not a Church which is the bride of Christ,"

"He who does not pray to the Lord prays to the devil. When we don't proclaim Jesus Christ, we proclaim the worldliness of the devil, the worldliness of the demon."

"We must always walk in the presence of the Lord, in the light of the Lord, always trying to live in an irreprehensible way,"

"When we walk without the cross, when we build without the cross and when we proclaim Christ without the cross, we are not disciples of the Lord. We are worldly," 

If this ain't the real jumbo I don't know what else it could be.

  1. I guess he is going to be a bible thumping hard liner. I knew, or expected he, like any pope has got to fight abortion and I guess they have to fight gay and women rights, but I thought he was going to fight for the poor, perhaps turn some of the hard asses in the catholic business world back to more charity and less self enrichment. That had me optimistic, that at least he would be somewhat supportive of the poor, and hammer the rich. Not so sure now. Time will tell. I hoped he could at least hit one of the marks.

    1. I saw the optimistic post you made yf and no way would I jump on that. Like with politics here it's the same with Rome and the head robe. These people just aren't going to change much from the status quo if anything. I've seen the same shit my whole life.

      If they kept to themselves I would be a bit quiet but they don't. They hide their rape and have for years and their crimes are generational. There is no mercy for these people. I understand not all are bad but stay out of people's lives who want nothing to do with you or your Dark Ages beliefs.

    2. I wonder if he will continue the investigations of the "Nuns on the Bus" group, (I can't remember their real name) the largest organization of nuns. Benedict turned the office of inquisition on them, it is the same office that has operated since the middle ages, it has been re-named a few years ago but the goal remains. In this case, they paid too much attention to women, womens health, and social programs to aid women. This will be a real sign of what he intends, and I think I know the answer, but lets see.

    3. Odds of course are very very high that nothing will change dramatically. If it did then it would no longer (the church) be what it is has been and will continue to be forever probably. The robes like it the way it is.

  2. Being a compassionate NGO sounds a lot better than being a bunch of d-bags. Just say'n.

  4. I was way outta Dodge when the meat thing happened and of course the wine is new to me. I'm sure that is a huge deal to these robe lovers - proof too that the church is changing or some stupid thing like that.
