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.

  1. Certain things are immutable and unchangeable: the most important of these is the fact that most people would still complain if they were hung with a brand new rope. Even if the rope was cold and covered with ice.

  2. We had a light frost this morning, first one of the season. Supposed to be 75F on Wednesday, wish it would do one thing or the other, can't stand 40 degree temperature jumps unless it's 100F to 60F.

  7. Last week we had about three nights in a row when the temp dropped below 10F...I learned that is the temperature at which my external (jury-rigged, though not by me) kitchen drain freezes until the temp once more rises above 35F...

    you live and learn, and i have learned i need to get some plumbing work done...bummmmmmer
