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.


Never Ending Supply Of Stoopids

We've all done some stupid shit I'm sure but one that I didn't fuck up on was trying to pet a deer and particularly one with horns and not this time of year as well.

Rule #283 don't be making nice with animals in the wild and especially with ones that can kick your ass. That's so easy. Then they killed the deer.

Here they killed a Smoothy and turns out he didn't have the mange cuz it's a genetic thing and they can survive harsh winters. It was because he didn't look right and loved to chop


  1. The name of the woman gored by the mule deer was Joan NUTT. How appropriate.

  2. Bwahaha! This reminds me of the idiot tourist who was informed "Don't feed the bears". Then she asked, "well, can I let my children out to play with the bears?" and the young intern replied, "that qualifies as feeding the bears."

    Morons. How the fuck do these cretins manage to survive childhood? You'd think they would have managed to suffocate themselves to death by forgetting how to breathe or some shit like that, they're so fucking stupid...

  3. In 2003 I was in Jellystone when, after photographing the bison, the Chinese tourist attempted to place his child on the back of same wild animal. The deceased was from Taiwan so at least they didn't die a Commie.
