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.


And For What??

Five US troops killed in helicopter crash, officials say

There are no voices in DC that demand we leave now.

No voices in DC that say these troops died for nothing.

Few voices anywhere that scream no more and those screams go unheard.


  1. Very good article. Congratulations.thanks for that great info

  2. My family had one when I was very little.

    May have been the first family car.

    It was BIG!

    Love ya,


  3. It's a shame that such a beautiful car should sit next to a reasonable description of the work of the war pigs. Incidentally did the mission ever get accomplished in Iraq? Afghanistan? Any fucking where?

  4. My father had a '59 DeSoto back in the day. It was as big as an aircraft carrier.

  5. I guess it did Tony as the good 'ol USA is planning more. It sucks.

    I guess I hang out with Desoto people here on the internets. I would guess this is an early to middle 50's model here and it looks very similar to Chevy's of that time.

  6. We waste our young in foreign misadventures and here at home. I suppose it's a consistent policy, but there's nothing else good about it.

  7. Consistently flawed for damn sure!
