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.

Solid Potato Salad

From 1944 in color and way too good! The Ross sisters do some things here that don't seem possible. This is fun and worth spending a couple minutes.

  2. Wow! I used to dance but was never that athletic. Their balance and the strength in their legs blows my mind away. No wonder they have such flat tummies.

  4. I could never have done anything close to this even back when there was a chance. I saw this and just said WOW as well.

    Going through some vintage pictures that will be posted soon. There is just one I'm going to put up at the picture place when I get home because I just ran across it and I like it a lot.

  7. You think of the song when you think of 1944 you certainly don't think of those shapes and that movement. They are or were great!
