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.


Art On The Rocks

Did this two weeks ago. Fun trip and these things were impressive. I was around this area (one way in one way out) for five hours or so and on the way out saw a car.

  1. I would have thought that there would have been some type of security fence around it.
    Do these places ever get vandalized?

  2. You can see the gun shots. Fences are impratical. At Chaco and other places they have severely limited where you can go from not that long ago. I'm glad it's not worse than it is.

  3. One fly your so lucky. I have a pretty good camera but as of yet I've not taken to many pictures. Pictures of the Country Ghetto I live has no redeeming value. LOL
    Nice stuff keep going....

  4. Thanks Tim and thee are pictures out there - they just have to be found.

  5. Great stuff Mr. Fly. Fabulous.

  6. Thank you Holte I'm glad you liked this.
