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.

A Brief Word On The Open

Tiger won and it took 91 holes to do it. Never saw one shot but it's my understanding today he did not hit many fairways. Anyone who comes here knows I have an attitude about this game the people who play it and the organization behind it. Jack Nicklaus said some time ago that with the manicured conditions the tour plays on players don't have to manufacture shots as in the past and he is correct. Tiger is better than every player out there in that respect because his Father emphasized that and also practicing in all kinds of inclement weather.

I don't know for sure but I bet this guy while recovering because he could not put any strain on his knee was out there as soon as he was able working on his short game and in particular putting for hours on end every day he could. Bottom line on these PGA professionals-DRIVE FOR SHOW AND PUTT FOR DOUGH and that was proven dramatically in this tournament. An amazing performance for sure. Congratulations Tiger!!
