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.



OTC was given this by Blue Girl Red State so part of the deal is to plug ten others. We can do that but first need to give a big thank you and credit Blue Girl for one fun place to go.

Many know Ornery Bastard. First post read there I needed to leave a response. OB posts here as well. Good stuff for sure!

Check out the Command Post a site from a service member on Guam. Then ran across Brit in a Red State both worth a visit.

West Africa interests me and Pauline from Abidjan writes at west africa always wins. Excellent! It's like being there plus the great pictures. Found BEING BUKOLA BRAVELY a new blog that will be posted from Lagos.

The BURNED OVER DISTRICT done by Montag. Like his attitude plus my fishing bud's name is Montag.

OTC has a Field Negro and they have a white boy straight outta the cornfield. That's probably close to a fair trade.

Ever since BAD have found so many blogs that amaze me because they're so good. Crinch Pin is one. Bolivia Rising if your interest is in that part of the world is another.

All that I know is that OTC aspires to be like what I see other places. All of you guys are excellent!

  1. Thank you kindly. I have been fighting the Crud for going on two weeks and my posting is reflecting my attitude lately.
    I will think about this for a bit and then dive in.
