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.


I Give

I do and hardly give a shit anymore.


  1. Good to see you are still kicking my friend.

    Might as well kick back and have a cold one. It doesn't matter who the president is anymore, this country is doomed.
    Have a nice meal every chance you get and stay away from crowds.

    1. Went down to Mexico Busted and came back. Will probabl go back to where I've been in Dec - come back and go back in April for a looooooong time.

      Nice to hear from you!

  2. Going on 75, I won't have a lot to lose during the Trumpenf├╝hrer's regime, but my children and grandchildren will.

  3. Hope You're having fun down there on the RIGHT side of the soon, coming wall! heh

    1. Actually bj I'm on the north side right now. Gonna go back to the PV area Dec some time and/or very possibly for a year anyway this coming April.

  4. I'm afraid your friend Phil is right. It doesn't matter any more who the president is.

  5. Replies
    1. It does matter. Caring a great deal can become depressing when you are right and the dark side prevails more so than not.

  6. You have the right idea, sadly. With trumps extreme behavior the past few days wherein, in less than 5 days in office, he has crippled the press, so we can no longer discover his deeds.

    Heir Trump has just threatened Chicago; "If they can't get their city under control, I am going to send in the Feds." And by Feds, I am absolutely certain that does not mean the FBI. The feds he'll be sending there will be wearing camouflage combat BDUs, combat boots and helmets, carrying loaded fully automatic weapons and likely, knowing Trump's penchant for overstatement, tanks and APVs with .50 cal machine guns mounted on them.

    Trump has signed the bill to begin his infamous wall and he's going to reopen the black prisons around the world (probably for all us uncooperative Americans)

    The scumbag has issued an open statement that he's shutting down the free speech of Federal Employees - they are no longer "allowed" to address the public about their opinion.

    He's opening a massive investigation into Steve Bannon's most cherished paranoia - voter fraud, still insisting there is massive voter fraud in the nation, but now, it's 4 million, up from the 3 million of those illegal aliens committing voter fraud in California.

    CA, a state that has 4,212,484 registered voters on file with the CA SOS. The CA SOS says they had a 72% voter participation rate in the 2016 general election, subtracting 72% of 4,212,48 from 3 million fraudulent voters leaves a state as massive as CA with just 32,988 valid voters.

    He has given the Israeli Government a blank check for building settlements wherever and whenever they wish, and they're already taking him up on it, building 2500 new homes on the west bank after evicting any and all Palestinians from their own homes to accomplish this.

    Trump is not just a maniacal jackass, he's a mentally deranged idiot.

    Al of this is horrifying; to think that in just 5 short days he's created serious havoc at home and across the entire planet. And his megalomia-infested, alternative reality mind is just itching to put his fingers on the "neuk'em buttons" to incinerate billions of Muslims!!!

    I would love to join you down there, but, in all truthfulness, I don't think there's a truly safe place to escape heir Trump anywhere on this planet.

    If Congress doesn't get their thumbs out of each others asses and do something about this lunatic, I truly think, that when we look at Trump, we're looking at the end of humanity.

  7. Well Bob that's a pretty dynamic statement and sadly I concur.

    I do care but I don't either if that makes any sense.

    Thank you for your passion and I saw your post today and didn't know what to say at the time. Stole the picture of Trump and it's truly scary as you point out and you are right about there being no safe place.

    It's just as bad as imagined and more. This shit will be a daily deal and touch most every human on the planet in one way or another.

    This is the total power grab that I had thought the Bush Regime was putting together but it wasn't quite there yet.

    The evil in this country put this together and got it done again always with treason.

    My hope is when he starts talking the big roman candles a true intelligent country loving realistic military guy takes care of it.

    He would be a true hero.

    This insane fuck will want to use them.


    It may be time to walk away from media of all types. Now the left wants to fight but votes to confirm the evil in the senate.

    WTF!! We are so screwed and yes humanity should be very worried.
