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.


Oh Happy Day

Scalia is dead the piece of shit!

The debacle that lies ahead - the horror.

Stay away from it and your life will be much better served.

I do not look at this as celebrating. He's gone and I am just fine with that. Didn't ask for it but it happened.


  1. Here in the south, egardless of how we feel about someone's passing, we always say "Bless his Heart".
    I'm only hoping that when the details emerge, he passed 'in flagrante delicto' ... with his houseboy. and their goat.
    Bless His Heart

  2. Barack Obama's thugs had Scalia murdered :)

    Sick jokes aside, you won't believe some of the nutzoid theories spewing out of the Far Right Wackosphere. When they put their tinfoil hats together, all bets are off.

    1. And they are serious and bets ARE off Tom IMO.

  3. We only vaguely heard of Scallia over here but he seems to have been quite the asshole. I don't believe Obama had him whacked though. I reckon Obama did it himself.

    1. unlike the trumpenfuerher down deep obama would probably like to see a few of these bastards go away tony would be my guess

  4. I still a bit of guilt for celebrating the man's death. Maybe we should mourn the man, but celebrate his having "decided" to step down from the bench?

    Nah... let's just party!

  5. Well me too Squat! In fact I admit to coming back after a few minutes and adding the last sentence. It was seeing a couple references about being not so nice concerning the death of anyone.

    Fuckers made me second guess because like you we have morals that encompass much more goodness and helpfulness this guy ever did. And that's being nice. Far too nice.
