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.


The Men In Red And Word On The Street

The are at it in earnest behind closed doors.

Cardinals entered the Sistine Chapel on Tuesday for the conclave to elect the next pope

Word is they sent out for an order of young boys and hold the clothes. 


  1. In Vatican City it's not against the law.

  2. Wait until they have Cardinals Night at the bathhouse.


  3. Now, now.... :) If there was any news less interesting to me I wouldn't know what it was... these fools are so irrelevant to anything any more... it's completely absurd.

  4. hahaha...Hold the clothes??? Worked all day and tired...dang!...wish I could think of something "on the side"

  5. Irrelevant yes and irreverent as hell as this nonsense is all over Big Whore Media. No smoke - no smoke. This is not news but only another diversion from real issues. Totally disgusting. And the mind screwed hang on every smoke signal.

    Where is the cavalry when you need them. That's right - we are the cavalry.

  6. okay, that made me laugh but it wasn't funny!

  7. Is there any organization or government anywhere that's run by people who are even half as decent as the membership?
