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 Again

And again I am so fortunate that I am able to do these things. Going west  to where I've been before where there is an unobstructed view of the sky for the meteor show tonite if I can stay awake. There's not a cloud in the sky. Into Utah and up into Wyoming to check something out and back to Colorado to hopefully catch some fish. We'll just see where the road leads and wait for something interesting to come along or happen and it generally does.

To everyone who stops by thanks for that and have a safe and fun weekend where ever you may be! If you get a chance go wish Monkeyfister a Happy Birthday.

Giv'em hell and don't take no shit!
