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.


X Games Safety?

You're kidding right. Our society loves nothing better than watching endless video's of people being hurt or hurting themselves on purpose.

This fetish demonstrates a culture that has issues. Came up "short on the second of the course's four massive jumps". Tough shit. This is front page billing as well and is just not news.

A society that embraces violence on many levels but you cross a line when you blow away let's say more than a few with a gun. The outrage over mass killings is nationwide. Single doubles and triples not so much.  
No linky.

"Feel the fear but do it anyway." Later that night, the 19-year-old New Zealand skier was rushed to a Denver hospital with a fractured back she suffered during practice after coming up short on the second of the course's four massive jumps. That same night, 25-year-old snowmobiler Caleb Moore's condition worsened as a cardiac injury he suffered in a crash Thursday night during the X Games freestyle competition led to a brain complication.


  1. Got to admit...in my stupid younger days I did some crazy stuff. Hahaha!

  2. We all probably did but there is a difference.
