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.

And The Real Killer Is

The cop six times over!

Four children and their mother and father were killed when the driver of a stolen pickup truck slammed intotheir SUV during a deadly high-speed police chase.

Not only do they have a license to kill in other ways this way produces grisly results on a regular basis.

Take these people off the pedestal they've been falsely elevated to! 

A 20 year old with a stolen vehicle is not worth six lives and all the rest. Why can't people get this. Decades of the same and other shit they pull and few say boo.

It ain't ok with this guy. Never was never will be. Just saying. 
I'd like to have that optimistic view and say that it's changing like people on the left like to say. It's not.

  1. Indianpolis had to institute rules on police chases after a tragic cop car accident that killed some kids - the arch criminal they were chasing after was a shop lifter.

    Good post!

  2. Sheesh...this is really sad! Sounds like the "catching" almost becomes sport instead of logic.

    1. That's the point TMoon. These badges do what ever they want because we allow them to. Not me.

  3. I'll wager if THAT cop had it to do over again ... he'd handle the situation differently. Unfortunately there are no "Do-Overs" in these kinds of tragedy. Short of chasing actively killing mass murderers or Ayman al-Zawahiri types, THIS kind of pursuit should be abolished .... IMO

    1. Without question it should bj. How come we're the only ones that know that.

    2. I reckon soon enough car chases like this will be the thing movies are made about .... when the collective Police Forces all have their own drone squadrons .... (gulp!)

  4. I drive by an intersection with wreaths where six people were killed after a high speed chase. When my brother was on the police force in the '70's the policy was that if the person they were chasing hit 100mph to let them go, the danger to the public was greater than the need to catch whoever they were chasing. Seems the police are no longer in the serve and protect mode.
