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.


State Record For Kilt B'ar

This is pretty damn interesting and assume it's all true but as time goes by this story may rival Davey Crockett. I have mixed feelings about this but the bottom line game management does work for the most part and there is plenty game around these parts.

This thing weighed 703 lbs. and get this ---- he crawled into a cave and got him. He's going to be a celeb you can bet on it. Here is the link to the story and whether you agree or not it's quite a story.

I would rather see this animal alive in the wild much more than hanging on a wall or walking on it. So here is a picture of live bears who I enjoy so much and never tire of seeing as well.

Relive the old days if you want. Hell you might have your coonskin cap laying around yet. Here'ssss Davey.


  1. I was reading a biography of Peter the Great and it mentioned the Swedish King Charles V (I believe that's the name). Charles would go bear hunting with a staff that had a Y shape at its tip. He would place the Y under the bear's neck and in doing so expose the critter's belly. He would then kill the animal with his sword.
    That is badass.

  2. It is but I wonder how it worked with one running at you who didn't want to stand up. No matter what I ain't getting that close to no b'ar.

  3. Wow! A real Elmer Fudd. WTF was he doing crawling into a bear's cave. How very unbrave of him. Shooting the bear that was beginning to go into hibenation mode from 6 feet.
