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.


And The Answer Is

Originally posted 2/8/07 got the answers I've been looking for. I enjoyed this video so much as there was a lot going on. Just as much the song was a delight. Wanted to put a face to the voice in the song.

The group is call&response. The song is rollerskate. Found the answer at SONGZA. Never been there and it's great. They let you add a player. The video is a minute and the song in the player is four.

Here is the young women who sings this and it's a fun watch too. The video is from flightplanfilms.com

May not be much but it's something anyway plus I get a kick outta shit like this.

Do not have time for a post today as need to deal with all the goddamn snow. Drug this up from the archives to see if I can get lucky and find somebody out there that may know the artist who does the music on this short video. That would be nice. Just went out to warm up the car and I tell you there's so fucking much snow it's getting kinda crazy.
