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.


Just For The Hell Of It

I just purchased some CA-40 fuel fuel additive. I do not use additives at work or in my own vehicles basically because I'm cheap. I did so now because I think this stuff works and I want to find out if I can increase my mpg by 10% maybe more.

Since I'm lazy too at work I use just one specific type and brand of motor and hydraulic oil for everything with tremendous success and don't feel the need to improve much. Preventive maintenance and proper operation is the key to longevity. Fuel mileage is something else these days. I will find out soon and definitely reveal results. My 2000 Suby Forrester gets 28-29 mpg. I'll believe these guys from Minnesota a whole hell of a lot more than some rat fuck frat boy from the east coast who thinks he's from Texas. This will be interesting.
