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.


Tiny Bubbles And The Other Kind

I have been busier than three illegals hired to take the fly shit out of a ton of ground black pepper. Before falling asleep in the chair last night I ran across this video that I thought was way too cool. Maybe many have seen this but not me and I was more than impressed.

From this post at Crooks&Liars there was a link to a site called Life in the Fast Lane another cool place all about the art of bubbles. Way down at the bottom were these two videos one of which I'm posting. Watch these dolphins do amazing things with the bubbles they make with their blow holes. If you're not aware of this you will not be disappointed.


  1. you know I believe that if we as a country were not so busy chasing dollars more people would appreciate and enjoy the mystery of things like this. I pity the many that have a keep up with Jones' attitude and mis a lot of the more enjoyable things in life.

  2. That was so cool. I went to the web site and watched the other one that goes along with this one.

    With everything that is going on around us, this was nice.

  3. I love dolphins.

    Dang, this is Orlando, not San Diego.

  4. This was fun I agree and I thought it came from San Diego Nunya.
