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.

MPG Results

Last April wrote this about trying a fuel additive to see if it actually worked.

Here are the the mpg figures for five fill-ups.
34.7 - 30.4 - 31.6 - 28.3 - 29.5
28.5 is the number I'm using for the average.

That is an increase with these numbers of 8.4%
If I messed up the fill with the 34.7 by a gallon the increase would be 6.5%.

Not ready to draw any conclusions but I guess it's fair to say there has been some increase. Have a lot of this juice left and am trying to drive as little as possible. $3.76 when I filled up today and that was the cheap place. The sun came out and will finally remain and turn into summer. It's pretty much been two jacket days till now. Very busy but have an oil change coming up. Will jerk at least one plug and check the air filter just to be sure. I do think the average 28.5 is a bit high. Tenths of gallons and not many miles mean a lot in the final numbers but the the longer it goes the more accurate they become. This will take some time.
