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.


Who Would Have Thunk

Someone today will be the 10,000th visitor to this site. Whoever that might be and to all the other 9,999 a huge THANK YOU for that! It is a wee bit humbling considering the 16th of this month is one year for the counter.

Initially this site was an experiment that was not all that successful and had become very boring gradually evolving to what it is now. It was so interesting as I learned the different things that could be done by visiting other places and realizing how you can reach out and touch so many others here and around the globe. That's just way too cool but it is the internets you know something our current prez and maybe the next know squat about. That makes me smarter than them which isn't saying a hell of a lot.

This post hit the counter jackpot big time and continues to take hits on a daily basis. It sure wasn't because of superb writing skills or the content of the post but of the person referenced which was the reason for the post. It also proved very quickly the local fish wrapper was just that as they reported one of the parties in the article linked to was Russian but the first day when so many hits came from Bulgaria a quick phone call proved this party was Bulgarian. That gives OTC more credibility than the fish wrapper.

I get a kick outta shit like this because it allows me to include things that are fun for me in addition to items that I feel are important or just the regular old rants. Sometimes it's good sometimes it's bad. But I try on a daily basis to put up something that hopefully is interesting.

I have made up my mind that fairly soon there will be a change in my life as I have decided to move from here after almost 18 years. I've grown weary of this place and many who live here with their small minds who are unable to grasp reality of the world around them because for what ever reason they feel they are entitled to do what ever they want without respecting other members of the community. There is something seriously wrong here and One Fly wants no more of it.

When this move happens it will probably be by the end of October. I will be a busy boy and there will not be much happening here. It will be a positive change as I look forward to to be removed from the constant bickering complaining and conflict that many thrive on here. Stick your soap opera up your ass people. When the door is hitting me in the ass on the way out of town that will be a good day.

Thank you again to the ones that come and visit on a regular basis and to all those who pop in too. Seriously I have made more good friends here than I have made living in this place for what has become too long a time. Giv'em hell!


  1. Best of luck with your move.
    Hope you're not off line very long.
