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.

The Last Stretch

320 to go and I'm outta here in an hour or so. It's snowed every day since I've been gone plus it was cold. Will probably have to shovel the roof and hope all is ok inside as I had turned the heat down.

The pictures of Chaco are not very good as it was overcast but will put some up when I get back. Do have a problem with my ride but it should be okay. Hope all of you are well.

Later-One Fly

  5. I am home and there's a bunch of snow here but not too cold.

    I went in through Cuba Woody and now you can't leave on 57 on the north side but the south which is probably better.

    It's a lot of fun taking pictures along the way Dusty. I enjoy yours as well.

    In a while I'll have something else up on this but it's nothing special.
