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.


Include Cell Phones Too

Nearly 1 in 10 U.S. kids addicted to video games. Hell I know an adult or two that are as well-what the hell is new.

If there is a real addition happening it's with cell phones where there is rapt attention given to this device with thumbs constantly moving. Once again people doing this are oblivious to the world around them and as for myself I like to know what's happening in my immediate area. Overall it is a negative from where I sit.


  1. Have I mentioned my Three-T Theory (3 T = Text, Tweet, Twitter)?

    That they are the functional, human equivalent of the constant, shrieking chatter between members of a monkey-troop by which all members are constantly assured of their status within the troop???

    By the way: Legalize It.

  2. More than a theory there Woody.

  3. You're right, cell phones have become the new addiction of the younger generation.

  4. Texting is the stupidest waste of time and money. Make everyone use the jitterbug and turn it back into a phone again.

  5. Seems to me that you are right! Cell phones and its many functions are the primary problem. Texting while driving, sexting gee we probably would have been passing nudies too!
