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.


Don't Buy This Field

The Field of Dreams is for sale.

The thrill and curiosity is over. Do you know how long it takes to pay back 4mil plus interest selling $20 novelty items. 

Just wanted to say that this was an excellent place to film this. After WWII damn near every town had a baseball team. A small town close to where I grew up even had a black team. Not sure how they got there but when I played high school ball there was a black player from the one family left.

A few years later got to play a few games of organized ball in SE Iowa which was fun. After high school very much wanted to play Legion ball but had to work.

The way it was.


  1. The sellers are surely dreaming...

  2. An idiot gave a couple million to Oral Roberts so he wouldn't be "called home." Why wouldn't another idiot pay three times more than what a piece of land is worth because Kevin Costner made a movie there?

    If I were the realtor I'd tell people Costner would be called home if nobody pays 5 million for this plot.

  3. One thing for sure T101 is that if someone does buy it they won't be local and will not be a farmer.
