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.


Simple Bastard Says He Enjoyed Being Taken Hostage

It's true it seems.

"I feel sorry for anybody who has been hurt, but other than that, I quite enjoyed it," the man said.

Somebody please kick this guys ass - - please!


  1. I notice they gave names or descriptions of the others who commented, but not THIS dunderhead. I can't imagine anyone (and I've been there) experiencing a firefight and the accompanying death of people "enjoying" it. Perhaps the guy should have stayed for more "fun" ... perhaps the writers of the story are taking license to spice up the story. Either way ... WTF? SOMEbody needs an ass kickin'!

  2. I read nothing in depth bj and said I wasn't gonna do this shit but saw this out the corner of my eye.

    Maybe someone should play "pretend" and knee cap this dumb ass and then ask him what he thinks.

    They'll probably put him om the tb ya know.

  3. You were tempted and you failed... You weren't gonna do this!!! I understand he's a dumb ass...but there's so many jerks/dumb asses out there...the news is full of them. hahaha...honestly I was expecting a comment about Te'o. You've been quiet a couple of days and I thought that would pull you out... har har har

  4. I'm kinda there TMoon. Who be Te'o. Never heard of him.

  5. That's a great question reporter should ask but they won't.

  6. He is one sick person!
