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 Little Bit Of Caddy Shack

Spring is coming even though it's still February and with the warmer weather the fever is in the air. Personally I do not want an early spring and actually want it to snow a bit more. That reason is work related only. I never used this procedure below until fairly recently and am kicking myself in the ass for all the frustration I endured because of the conservative side of me. This actually works well if one uses a bit of common sense. If you watch this you will laugh as Curtis manages to screw up. Not his fault he's from Montana.

Poor boy-this is how hot it was. At least there's no blood.

Then this guy came out today which is a bit unusual and early plus there was a chipmunk on the roof. Keeps going like this the bears will be out soon too.

This is what a marmot looks like. Tourists think they're so cute and there's some truth to that. They can be destructive too and have been the reason for several law suits because of dumb ass golfers who can't watch where the fuck they are walking and step into the big holes they dig. Their warning cry is a whistle and that is why they are called whistle pigs.
