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.


Nothing Gonna Happen

It's so nice out that there's not going to be any sticking around doing house and blogging stuff. I'm going for a ride and it's going to involve a vehicle, water and a fly rod plus a camera.

I did get a post up this morning at the picture place. Nothing too special but there's a couple nice ones.

Puter is working good-didn't loose my documents or music like I thought but somethings were. It's fast! Much more so than the operator.

Later-have a good one!!


  1. All right have a ball Tom. Question: I think you said you went to Curt Gowdy SP, did you ever go to the back of the little lake and walk down to the dry river bed. There is a little treasure there in an old mine and maybe you can still see my name.

  2. I could have fed myself today TC. The Colorado was dirty aso went to a stream and it was perfect but they weren't doing it. May go back tomorrow.

    No Jim I've not been there but if I do and find this thing are you saying my working days will be over????

  3. Dude, have fun. see ya when we see ya
