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.


It's A Bird It's A ??

Last Sunday playing around with another video camera I shot this video and after watching it a couple times noticed another object. It is seen at 17seconds about the middle of the screen going at an angle from left to right close to the contrail.The nose of the jet and the object actually meet. It's probably  another plane but it doesn't really look like one. In slow motion it's seen at 47sec. You have to watch in hi-def to see this and it needs to be said that if I did not have a camera that recorded in hi-def nobody would have seen this. It seems this plays in hi-def on it's own as on my computer there are no quality choices as usual on the lower right. Not sure click on you tube and watch there.

It might not be much but I get a huge kick outta shit like this!


  1. Can you go back and put a circle around it? I am seeing nothing.

  2. No I can't Mont-I'm sorry. No big deal I'm pretty sure it's a plane.

  3. Damn, and my eye doctor said when he took out my cataracts I would see as good as new. I'm gonna ask for my money back.

  4. send me a bag of that, will ya! oh, and sum papers please...
