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.


Out Of Here

We think there are adventures to be found in SE Utah. In fact we know that. In a bit we're gone so there will be little posting but there should be plenty of ammunition for things seen and done.

One thing we want to do for sure is explore once again this tiny ruin that sits very high up on a small ledge that we found years ago. Not many have been to this place. Way too cool.

It's 0 degrees and time to hit it. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week. Spring is close-yes!



  1. Must be nice to get away.

    Enjoy yourself and take a break.

    We'll hold the fort.

  2. 0 degrees on the first day of spring, things are warming up nicely.

  3. Enjoy the trip. I wish I were there toi toss a spinner onto an ice shelf and pull it into a stream. :-)

  4. Thanks guys. We got back yesterday late afternoon. Yup-back to the real world. Didn't listen to any politics see any politicians and am unsure if I want to blog about this shit anytime soon. I'm very tired of it.
