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.


From One To Another

 Nobel Peace Prize winning former President Oscar Arias said that a military response to a suspected chemical attack last week would cost hundreds of thousands of "innocent" lives.
“After careful consideration, I have decided the United States should take action against Syrian regime targets,” Obama said in Rose Garden address Saturday.

The hypocrisy meter is off scale. It was off the scale when he was given the Peace Prize. This man is so bush like it's hard to take.


  1. Fox news is what's hard to take........sheesh!!!

  2. I've not seen it for some time. I believe you. Do the women still wear short skirts and flash things?

  3. Actually I think he is more Bush like than Bush.


  4. That hurt and the fact that he is actually educated. The chimp was not very smart.

  5. I wonder how bombing and killing innocent civilians in Syria will avenge the gassing of innocent civilians in Syria? Is it me or does the logic not stack up?

  6. A huge no shit Pat. We are not using flawed logic.

  7. We have yet to have one day of peace from the Nobel Peace Prize president. But he does have 2+ years left in office to give us at least one day of peace.

  8. He's running out of time quick.

  9. Love the header of the grazing Bison, 'Fly! Great colors and composition!
    Maybe it's the JOB that changes the man (power corrupts?). I'd like to think it's because of the myriad issues of which I'm ignorantly unaware that cause the shift in core values after the change from campaigner to President occurs.
    If you recall, Mr. Obama was goaded into the "Red Line Of Death" policy by the Tea Party Nutjobs as much as he was by the Republican Nutjobs, on every issue from Iran to North Korea to Syria. (Why does there always HAVE to be a Red Line In The Sand?)Now that he's taking them to task over the loose, spittle flecked, rhetoric they've been shouting ... I see no course of action other than attack. Raytheon is sooo happy ...

    1. That's the way it turned out too bj. There was a bit of fence in the foreground that got cropped.

      I think more and more the pentagon is calling the shots.

  10. In a world where Obama is a 'Peace' Laureate and Tony Blair is a 'Peace' Envoy, where do I sign up to be a Sex God?

  11. In terms of civil liberties and warmongering, Obama is not just Bush 2.0; he's Bush 1.0 with Sexy Girl Mud Flaps.
