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.


Better Get Ready

Seen yesterday.


  1. Bad Spellers of the World, UNTIE!

  2. Figured you'd get a kick outta this. And this is new too.

  3. AT first I though it said: "Jesus is Conning" more appropriate.

  4. I'm ready. All I'm gonna need is proof of his identity, birth certificate will do or maybe a passport. I'd even go so far as to accept his Sears card, don't want to seem unfair.

  5. I wouldn't mind his return, just to see how fast Pat Robertson, Bennie Hinn and Fred Phelps and others of their ilk would condemn him. And then hopefully how fast those folk would be frying in Hell.

    A boy can dream, can't he?

  6. One thing George W. Bush taught my is that if you're ignorant and you don't care, you might as well flaunt it.

    Is this one of your photos, One Fly?

  7. Dyslexics say Dog is sending him...

  8. Hi Fly. If he did, they'd deport him as an illegal immigrant.

    I'm rushing through to let you know that I've moved Politics Plus to http://www.politicsplus.org/blog

    You're in the new blogroll there. Would you please update me in yours?

  9. Done deal TCat.

    Yes it is Cujo. Most always the one at the top is and more often than not the ones on posts are as well. I don't always put my handle on those but this one happens to have one. Taken between Meeker and Craig. Went for another cruise today not as long as yesterday and didn't get squat for pictures.

    I wish I had the wit you guys do. Appreciate your time-I really do.

  10. Yeah, Jesus is coming. He's coming to fix the plumbing in my apartment, that is. He usually teaches me a few words of Spanish in the process, including some that I don't wish to repeat on this blog ;-).

    As for the sign on the rock, the only thing that could make it more hilarious is if they spelled "comming" with a U :-).

  11. If only and like I tell Fearguth - when I see these things seriously I have a hard time spelling for a bit.
