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.


A Conversation Not Allowed

It's not just this topic either. When you throw into the mix religion out the door goes logic and common sense. Compound this at a national level and what you find for the most part is religious insanity behind the wheel driving drunk as a hopped up hoot owl.

May this young lady pass peacefully as she wants as it is her life decision and right to make for herself. Not by others who wish to impose their belief mores on all of us.

No group or person should have the right to impose their beliefs on others if the "others" choose not to participate.

It's real simple actually. It's not a stretch to say that the many who attempt this are mind screwed since birth mostly in a belief system that is more than severely flawed.

The level at which this is happening is disturbing. The hate from too many of these "believer" types when things don't go their way is even more alarming.

Across the board for the most part this segment of people are Repuglicans. They lie, cheat and steal. If that don't work they'll fucking kill ya and that's a fact.



  1. I so agree!


  2. A huge thanks on that Linda. We incarcerate people who assist rational terminal people into ending their lives in a dignified fashion.

    That conversation is the one not allowed and it's needed. There is not enough out there to help the tens of millions of boomers coming down the tube.
