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.


Another Do Gooder In Action To Save Us From An Ass

I have a sneaky feeling whoever felt the need to cover this butt up probably loves war and thinks that there is an invisible cloud being that knows all or maybe they did it for the humor but I doubt it.

I have been for the last few nights once again a casualty of the chair. Not hardly worth getting up.

After work running down to the Colorado for some late afternoon /early evening fish. Hope it gets very interesting.

There is a B-24 in town for Labor Day. I think I may be able to get up close or inside this thing. I would enjoy that a bunch not to mention the picture possibilities.

Have a good one everybody!!


  1. Was John Ascroft and his wife in Colo. recently? I guess "booty" is in the eye of the beholder; even android booty, afterall. You can rule out Dick Cheney because the "coverup" would of been a Depends.

  2. I lust after B-24 pics. That's a rare bird these days!

  3. I'll see what happens tomorrow jeg. Never been in any of these planes.
