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.


Another Report About The Gusher

For information on the gulf gusher Monkeyfister has been going above and beyond what you see in else where and I suggest you take a look at his post titled I Think Matt Simmons Is Being Proved Right.

You need to scroll down the page to see this and there is another post below the link that shows the leak in sea bed that we're not supposed to worry about.

Looking at this stuff I am worried and a big thanks to Monkeyfister for the effort he puts into this. He's been my go to place on this disaster. 



  1. Hey One fly

    Good job on this post. I took the video and put it over at my place with a link to you. Hope you don't mind.
