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.


Where OTC Will NOT Be Shopping

It always cracked me up when ordinary people who advertise at the end add something about being a very special human being different than me and implying better because they are "Christian".

That's real nice but the fact is I'm nicer than you and that's because I don't feel the need to let everyone know just how nice and special I really am ya see dere! Now there's the Christian Business Directory.


  1. I saw in the article that liquor stores and medical marijuana outlets are not the directory.

    Well I hope that the Christian plumber that these kooks choose is a good one, or they will up to their necks in shite.

  2. A-F'ing men One Fly. I am one of the few openly Christian lefties in these parts but that doesn't mean I'm a mindless idiot. I will never do business with anyone that says or implies, "Buy from me cause I'm a Christian." I'll buy from the atheist in a turban and Bin Laden beard before I would do business with blasphemous assholes that usr religion as an advertising gimmick.

  3. wasn't there somethng in the bible about Jesus tossing the money changers out of the temple? hmmm...

  4. I've dealt with these folks for 30+ years. One time, I (Ahem) prayed with a couple for 5 minutes to see if the cloud guy would send them a sign to buy the car. Made a nice commission,too. Thankya', Jesus. Now that's something you can bank on. As cousin Mel says, "The poorest return on investment in the history of the world is prayer." Ouch!!!

  5. the sad thing is there was a time when religious affiliation was more about socialist views and helping your neighbor. The advent of TV preachers has had the same effect on religion as that of getting a loan from someone on TV like Quicken or Countyside and the end result for religion will be the same, FAIL
