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.


B-25 Approach And What's Coming Next

Played yesterday and it was a very fun day and got home pooped and fairly late. Later there will be a video up of some of what we did. It could be half-assed decent and yours truly may be in it for a few seconds only.

Today we worked once again and am sitting real good for what's coming after fall as I will not say the four letter word that starts with s not f and put the hex on things.

Last night before dusk heard this plane and knew it was going to land shortly. Ran up to below the runway and did a video but it was too dark and it was worthless. Just now it passed over and quickly ran up there way too fast as sure as shit it was on approach and did not get to where I wanted to be and this is what I got. I love the sound of radial engines. Just couldn't take the time and hang out for a proper video.

For what it's worth this is the 1001 post for OTC. Who would have imagined as I sure as hell did not think this was going to go this far.

Thanks for being part of that!!
