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.


A good day on the Internets

It's good because skippy and others plus even more are linking to each other and sharing the common themes many have. The bigger including the little guys such as myself. Individually and as a collective the whole truth and the rest of the story has been and will continue to be told on this medium. Jon Swift has been a major player in this too. I find reading the little guys more entertaining and just about as informative. Our opinions have more credibility than the whores in the media because of just that. They sold their sorry worn out asses long ago and look where the fuck we are now. Pounding out our frustrations because these bastards do not have a goddamn ounce of integrity left in them anywhere to tell the truth. I gotta get busy with my link list and hope you do the same and encourage any who visit here to start your own blog if you do not have one and become part of this important and crazy world of the internets.
