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.

And it sucks a hind titty. I'm outta here-getting in the car and going to look for the sun. If I can't find it I will come home and if I do I will stay the night. Whether it's right or wrong that's what's going to happen in a few jerks.

May sun beams of warmth be bombarding all of your cheery faces this morning where ever you may be.


  1. Lots of sun down here, if you don't mind being knocked over by the wind.

  2. Really miss those heavy wet spring snows in the Rockies.

  3. you poor thing, hope you found some sun!

  4. We are in the 90s down here in Georgia.

  5. Gotta love the "Poor man's fertilizer", but I'm sure your at the same point I am at, enough with the snow already, hell it's May. Today in the Adirondacks, 52 and partly sunny but wind out of the north at 15. To cold for golf 2day.
