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.


Where Dinosaur's Played 6000 Years Ago

Some of what we did and saw this last Saturday. I need to get paid for doing this kind of stuff. Not the video but for cruising around looking for interesting shit.

Two young guys walked through the compound one morning years ago in West Africa and I asked then what they were doing and they told me they were "looking for adventure".

Always remembered that and my friend and I very much enjoy that as well.


  1. Cute little sucker isn't he? We saw another and these guys were pretty small.

  2. They're all gone, here in New Mexico.

    Totally gone.

    the only ones you see here are either made of epoxy or they're in zoos.

    They killed off all the ants, you see. The horny toads ate the ants, and when they killed 'em all off, the critters had now natural food.

    So, they're all gone from here.

    Cherish 'em!

  3. Great gadzooks..you guys part mt goat? Wouldn't catch my tired ole ass jumping from rock to rock like that.

    Woody just depressed the shit out of me. They are all gone for sure Woody? Shit.

    That is a great header pic OF, I look forward to your header pics every time I stop by.

  4. Well, we know about that place now. It must be easy casting into that river. You don't have to worry about getting snagged in a tree.

    Thanks for sharing. You certainly are having a good time with that video camera :)

  5. OF - you always have great header pictures. It changes everyday.

  6. Thanks guys!! Said before if a couple people enjoy this stuff it makes me feel good because it's no fun looking at your own stuff and I do get a kick out of this and with the help of Strudel boy this was actually half decent even though the ending got screwed up.

    And no Dusty I did not make that jump. It was not that far but I decided I would throw the rock and take that chance of killing myself that way instead.

    It won't be long and there will not be fresh pictures to put up as we get closer to you know what. Most of the header pictures this spring and summer have been taken the day before. The one today is from Sunday in Dinosaur.
