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.


Bitchin and Moaning

Yesterday was not very nice and am half ass sick. No leaves on the trees and there's still snow in the yard. Have not read much except for headlines and even that is enough to know things are really fucked up. They caught a big bad ass in Iraq another in a long line of big bad asses over the last five years. Won't make one shit bit of difference. They're still going to kill us forever. Sick of this political infighting and the whores in Congress who continue to fund the killing in Iraq with my money. Are we ever anytime soon going to see some good news like something coming around for one of these sonsofbitches that has screwed my country so hard and so long? Maybe the Bush will take a tumble at his daughter's wedding and break his fucking neck. No matter what the weather that would be a good day.

What's this video have to do with the above? Nothing except I haven't caught a fish yet this year and that's a first. It will still be some time before the type of water I fish gets good and I'm so ready. Did this at the local hatchery last year. Fishing takes my mind off all this other shit.
