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.


Come On Down

You may very well have seen these but I have not and find this to be dramatic at the very least. The talking sacks of wind contribute nothing as expected and the one thing that's interesting is that towards the end is a phone interview and I do not rule out the possibility at all.

If ever we needed something from the real not imaginary sky beings it's now! Come on down and give teh stupids a real dose of reality. You betcha!


  1. They have supposedly been seen all over the world of late. I had links and video but when I saw the one in Russia was debunked I trashed it.

  2. Hi Jim - which one was that if you remember.

  3. No Tom sorry, I looked all over and couldn't find what I did with it. You might find this interesting or find it right here

  4. Thanks for that James. Appreciate it!
