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.


Outta Here

Headed to the ranch as soon as I get done banging this out hopefully to meet up with Strudel Boy where we will attempt a couple videos. One is at a volcano in New Mexico the other at a massacre site in Colorado on the way there and it's not Sand Creek but would like to see that sometime soon as well.

It's 300 one way and I know some don't like driving but not me. It's like going to the movies and that means Nebraska as well. I have taken this drive probably a 150 times and I do not tire of it as it has to be one of the most impressive one can take in this country.

I will not be around the internets until I get back Sunday sometime. Have a fun and safe weekend everyone!!
