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.


Taking Care Of Business

Was down at the ranch and away from the internets. The temps were in the 90's and it was the warmest I've been in a long time. Unusual to say the least.

Have not been paying much attention to anything in detail but we still have a gusher that is foremost on my mind and will be until when and if they get it shut off.

No matter how these whores on TV play this just because they are capturing a small amount this is a disaster "Pass All".

I had just walked where this rattlesnake appeared a couple minutes later. Some times these guys have to go that's all there is to it.

There is a shot fired in this video and something does die just so you know.


  1. Very good video.
    I agree: "sometimes these guys have to go". A snake is dangerous both to humans and to animals.

  2. Somehow many snakes have learned that when they wear a suit and tie and say things people want to hear people are attracted to them only to be bitten and the venom makes them give campaign donations. Oh, and they don't have to tell the truth.

  3. YUK YUK!!

    Are we talking snakes in the grass here?
