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.


What My Fishing Bud Does During The Winter

Check this out-it's good stuff.

You can't go back but there was no such thing back in the flatland's of Iowa during the 50's.

I wish there would have been more of everything.


  1. Whew i hope they stay safe. All in the name of fun but there is a fine line between fun and disaster with extreme sports. Have fun I say!

  2. One of my all time favorite tunes.

  3. Lordy, Lordy. The 1st and 2nd and 3rd spills cracked me up but then I got a little nervous. Neat video and to die for scenery.

  4. I know several that got hurt this year. Price of doing business. They love this stuff. My friend who did this had just finished and posted it. I saw it and grabbed it and I like the tune as well. It's pretty but it's time for some green. We cut a bit of grass this afternoon for the first time. When the sun comes out things will be out of control. Supposed to be pretty shitty out damn near the rest of the week.
