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.


A Couple Things About The Boy And The Balloon

I heard about this and of course it sounded interesting. I watched for about 10 minutes and saw it land. This is what I noticed.

The reporters didn't seem to have much common sense nor did the authority's. It will be 30 or 40 minutes before it touches down. My ass it was less than two and any dummy watching could tell that and particularly when you could see the craft's shadow on the ground.

Why were they so concerned about the craft itself and did not have any concern for the little boy that supposedly was on board. This thing was going nowhere but yet it took about two minutes for them to inspect the area where this youngster should have been.

All I said when they didn't find anything was to look under this kid's bed.

This is why I do not have TV. This is an adventurous family and boy do I wish I could've grown up doing some of this stuff these boys are doing. I have seen a couple articles that insinuate the parents are putting these children in danger.

I have a feeling there's going to be a price to pay for somebody for some reason made up or not because kids just are not allowed to have this kind of fun.

Lucky little shits I never get anything.

Wouldn't be surprised he let it go - just to see. That what inquisitive little boys do.


  1. Don't Dismay OTC- I remember shootin' guns, riding pigs by holding their ears, fireworks by the trunkfull, drivin' like maniacs on gravel roads at 10 and other things you can't print in a family newspaper. You just want it all and I bet these kids would be just as jealous of your Huck Finn adventures. Been on any cropdusting plane rides lately?

  2. I caught a bit of it on TV, before they found the kid under the bed, the feeling I got from CNN, and even the Weather Channel was showing it, was that they wanted a disaster, they wanted a tragedy, they were almost disappointed when nobody was killed.
