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.

There's A Moose Loose

The last couple years moose have become part of animal life around here. As yet I have not been able to get any decent pictures. This winter mom and her kid have been seen a lot. Now there is only one. The other day probably the same one was running down the road followed by a car.

I have a good feeling what has happened to the other one. These special fuckers around here are in too big hurry to give these animals the space they deserve and the other one got hurt because of it. When there is traffic they become skittish and the roads are very slick at times and they have to cross it to get down to the creek for water. I hope the other one shows up because they pose no danger this time of year and it's a kick to observe them. This was taken out my window at work and they were directly below one time but didn't get to see them. Come on back guys I need some close up action.

You Tube now allows you to watch in high quality. There is an icon in the lower right of the video that will pop up when it starts playing.
