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.


If You Think He's A Real Special One

You are wrong.

Pope says assisted suicide is a "sin against God"

If one thinks change will be made within the church that many catholics want you will be wrong again.

The Poop himself should reflect a bit on what compassion means in matters that are none of his or the place he works for business.

The Poop and all the rest like him can kiss my ass.


  1. So I take it you agree with him, OF. ;)
    Nice garlic by the way. Grow it yourself? I got a good crop of wild garlic in my garden this year.

    1. No I didn't raise it Tony. We popped garlic -four of us for four hours. The new bed was planted the next day.

  2. HAVE FUN!!!! Warmth sun...ahhhhhhhhhhh


  3. To the best of my ability I hope life is likeable here and I think it may be pretty good Linda.

  4. I think it's just by comparison to previous popes that he seems like such a breath of fresh air. By pope standards, he's something of a progressive?

  5. Yes and no PC. It's like a politician if you're hoping for something better. Nothing changed with this guy nor will it. He's just a bit more personable. Probably might like a beer after sucking down down cheap alter wine for decades. Will a poop ever tell his breeding minions to stop - never going to happen.

  6. Honestly, I could really care less about the pope but the problem is he gets a huge say in what we can do with our own bodies and that is so anti god.

  7. Exactly RJ. That's why every now and then he and da church need to be called out on their nonsense.
