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

Doing a road trip north a ways into Wyoming then east through South Dakota and Nebraska and eventually arriving in the cornfield using primarily secondary roads. All these years have taken my time off during late fall and winter and hated it. That will be coming to an end soon I hope as this time of year it's so bland out but we're always looking for picture's. I'd like to be in the desert but want to make this trip and it's dead shit center of red amerika.

Will be in and out so there are some of the best bloggers out there in the blog roll. We've been right all along not the others guys who are supposed to be on our side as well. Check' em out.

It may be very late fall and a bit bland looking but the weather has been and will stay beautiful. It's like a perpetual movie driving down the road for me no matter where it's at and that movie is going to start in 10 minutes. 

Have a fun and safe weekend everyone and don't use the four letter word that starts with s.

Giv'em hell!


  1. Have a great time. I know plenty of pics are in your future. We all benefit from those.
    Safe trip

  2. Drive safe. We'll be headed the opposite way next week. Hey, that Farm Subsidy Data Base is really packed with lots of info. Thanks for that link.

  3. Been gone two days and I'm half way there. Glanced at the pictures last night and they don't look too good at all. I wonder how many who get these funds vote for less government. It's most repugs getting it so that's okay I suppose. Thanks!

  4. Fly, you ever read William Least Heat Moon's book BLUE HIGHWAYS?

  5. No Mr. N but I will check it out.
