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.


Jebber And Fly

Don't think Fly but for sometime I thought there was a better than average shot of him winning the repug nomination. Lights flashing,bells going off and whistles blowing. WRONG WRONG WRONG !!! He just may be dumber than W. Missed it big time.

How about this - the dynamics changed with the New York prick and outwardly Jebber was not as vile putrid and hateful as he. Old norms has been resurrected in our country and once again it has become fashionable to be ?. Add what you want. There are too many that fit and none are good nor positive.

The odds of a monster win for the Dark Side in November is certainly in play and the Left still can't get it. So certain their intellect will be the deciding factor when stupid, racist, hateful and malice is what so many want.

This sucks on so many levels and being around since 1950 never thought we would be returning to those times of yesteryear to make Merca great again. This is more than just serious.


  1. Love the header, 'Fly. ¿Cuál es el nombre de ese lugar? I get the feel of the place and can almost smell the aromas, too. At those prices even I could afford to eat there a couple times a day - a couple times a week. heh.
    When the GOP embraced the Tea Party back in '09 in an attempt to garner the angry white vote they began down this path. Along the way they've rung the bell clamoring for every hateful, malicious, racist to join their crusade against the negro and the brown invaders. and JOIN they have. Now the lunatic fringe is in control of the party and they maybe resigned to the New York prick.
    I agree with President Obama's prediction about Trump. I also have confidence that the voices we're hearing, though very loud and very negative are now a relic of the past like the fifties.
    hows'about a 'draft Biden' ploy at the convention?
    take care Pard' ...

    1. Here's a picture of the place bj.


  2. Thanks bj! Most of these places don't have much displayed for a name. I have to go into town tomorrow and will look to see.

    Yes the tbaggers were ever so funny back then - not so much now. I really believe they could pull this off.

  3. People here in Europe also getting quite worried about the Trump phenomenon. It's seen as a symptom of a dying empire.
    Oh, by the way, I'm having those Huevos Rev Fritos O En Torta in your header. Do you deliver?

  5. Tony I can't tell you how much I agree with you. The US has a number of societal issues some of which are pure evil and this man trump endorses them. The problems are not going away and it's amazes me just how many agree. it is scary!!!

    If I could deliver I sure as hell would.

    Have a good one!

  6. I have nothing but contempt for "Jeb!" He may not be as batshit crazy as some of the other GOP contenders, but with his sheltered trustfunded mindset and "let them eat cake" attitude, I think he's shit underfoot.

    Trevor Noah (Daily Show) was having a field day with Jeb's "please clap" debacle, including "Jeb's so unpopular, he can't even get the clap."

    I agree it's a terrifying thought that one of these GOP tools could actually get into the White House. I'd like to think American voters aren't stupid enough to let this happen, but unfortunately, they are.

  7. Yes unfortunately they are - that is for damn sure. Wrong on jebber but still going with the belief of a large fundamental shift in peoples beliefs in the last several years.

    A indicator of that is the popularity of this terrible hateful man. How can a normal rational person accept and endorse the shit he spews has me losing even more faith in my country and the people in it.

    And that doesn't touch politics and current repugs who are just about as bad.

    This is not good and of course the Left is certain of a blow out in Nov. Like they were when killer W was reelected.

    Thanks Tom!
