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.


New Territory

Living in a different place I've started driving different places to check things out which I did today. This video is shot of what it looked like on the way back. Had no idea what the geography was going to be like. One word - rugged! It is hunting season and there was a bunch of activity associated with that. Other than that I wouldn't have seen anybody and if it should snow much some of the out of staters won't be getting their shit out till spring I tell you!

Busted put up this post about how hard it was in the old days washing clothes. Can not begin to imagine how hard it must have been to live here in the pioneer days.

  1. Most of this land wasn't used for anything except summer grazing, logging or mining. Only those seeking the " grand solitude" would attempt to stay thru the winter. It looks like a great place to visit if your idea of fun is freezing to death quickly.
