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 Point Is This

In the last 18 months half has been spent in Mexico. During that time there has been some ups and downs but in the end all turned out pretty decent. Things do work here.

There have been quite a few friendships made both here in El Nogalito and Puerto Vallarta some of which have become pretty tight.

Reiterating what's been said before here continue to be impressed with this area and the people who live here. I have learned much. Friendly,courteous,helpful,caring and more. I am greeted by name often even in town. People smile here and a lot. I like that and there tends to be humor around as well - good humor!

To watch family's interact and especially with children and elderly is different than where I came from and just plain nice to see. Isn't it supposed to be like that? I very much like it here.

Now for the point and this is not nice nor should it be! In recent times all the good has been marred and specifics won't be explained. In that with all that I like so much the bad has to come from a piece of shit fucking gringo from the US and that's the point! It's a fact!

So I will be heading out earlier which I'm fine with as there are things that need done and time to get them out of the way. It will be a much larger adjustment than what it was when I returned here after seven months away.

I will be back but the horse's ass mentioned above won't be allowed back. You prick!
UPDATE APRIL   
 It is I who won't be going back. What the fuck do I know??? Don't think Fly and so much for friendships you thought were real tight.

A few pictures because.

Jebber And Fly

Don't think Fly but for sometime I thought there was a better than average shot of him winning the repug nomination. Lights flashing,bells going off and whistles blowing. WRONG WRONG WRONG !!! He just may be dumber than W. Missed it big time.

How about this - the dynamics changed with the New York prick and outwardly Jebber was not as vile putrid and hateful as he. Old norms has been resurrected in our country and once again it has become fashionable to be ?. Add what you want. There are too many that fit and none are good nor positive.

The odds of a monster win for the Dark Side in November is certainly in play and the Left still can't get it. So certain their intellect will be the deciding factor when stupid, racist, hateful and malice is what so many want.

This sucks on so many levels and being around since 1950 never thought we would be returning to those times of yesteryear to make Merca great again. This is more than just serious.

Oh Happy Day

Scalia is dead the piece of shit!

The debacle that lies ahead - the horror.

Stay away from it and your life will be much better served.

I do not look at this as celebrating. He's gone and I am just fine with that. Didn't ask for it but it happened.

Understanding ANN T

Living here like everywhere outside the US for the most part you meet expats from different places obviously. In the Vallarta area it is primarily Americans and Canadians with those from the north having the edge in numbers.

Local ex-pat acquaintances cannot understand why Native Americans don't get with the program so to speak and integrate into society. It's not easily nor quickly explained and don't know if I even could but throw this in.

I look at this picture from Wounded Knee and to me ANN T covers a great part of it which I identify with in these times in the United States.

In those terms in solidarity with ANN T One Fly respects nothing that comes from the political Right including the religiously insane (Bart Cop term) and the gun people. Specifically that means the human part of that and this guy wants little or nothing to do with those who think like that and associate with those things.

We'll throw in the gringo prick upstairs as well who has taken away my quality of life, the ugly overweight gringos who walk around with alcohol when I have never seen a local do the same. If there is anyone who does NOT greet or respond it'll be those from north of the border. Es cierto!

Just saying.
