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.


Leaving For The Cornfield

Driving back today and it appears the weather will be okay. It's 860 from here. This will be the first time in my life when I enter the house there will not be one of my parents there to greet me with a smile kiss and a hug. Dad is in the Care Center in town and have serious doubts as to whether he'll ever be able to return to his home. This is not just about my father but all of our parents and ourselves as we get older.

Last weekend read something and Googled wii therapy. Found this video that explains how a inter-active game is changing people's lives both young and old regardless of level of condition. Could this possibly help my Dad we'll see.

Posting will be less as there will be no easy access to the internets. Thanks to all those who visit here. tb
