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 That Time Once Again

Because of a comment left by Fearguth about how humans are the only animals that treat other humans so terribly it's time to reinforce for myself and anyone else who views just who we are and why. I like to look at this every once in a while because it is sooo good and so very true. If you have never seen this it's a must watch. And for all humans as well in particular powerful ones don't forget we're all nothing more than piss ants in time.


  1. Superb, One Fly! I had not seen this before.

  2. Then it was worth putting it up and I bet you'll not forget it any time soon.

  3. Yea, thanks! I have a link in my sidebar, but THAT has gotten so long I doubt if anyone scrolls through it anymore!
    ALSO, I wanted to hip you to
    My wife is really enjoying this, I thought you may find if of interest.

  4. This is wonderful but this is far more earth shattering, so to speak. Things are not what they seem, my brothers. If I were king, all first grade kids would begin their education with the Double Slit Experiment. It changes everything. http://www.cosmolearning.com/videos/double-slit-experiment-animation/

  5. Forgot this: "Man is the only animal that blushes - or needs to."
