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.


The Fight Continues

Make no mistake the confederacy is alive and well and once in awhile they let you know it. They are very proud of this man and his brother who never gave up their guns to the northerners.

The inscription on the statue and this come from the Augusta Chronicle who are doing a series on confederate hero's this week probably because the Masters is being played this week. Need to let the outsiders know who's in charge here yet.


  1. Yep, the Civil War is 150 years old and southerners will be talking up their side of the story.

  2. Ish. Pew. Ack! How do they breathe when there head is stuck where "the sun don't shine?"

    Nice header pics you've been choosing.

  3. Correction, in case the spelling police are on the loose: their.

  4. The picture today was at SAC Air Museum just outside of Omaha. The black angle is the "Blackbird" the premier plane that sits behind the window you see.

    I plead cornfield in respect to the spelling police Teresa. Please help me out.

  5. there: location
    their: referring to people or other beings.

    Spelling police is what I refer to those folks out there who like to find a power niche through correcting others misspellings and such. Believe me, they're (they are) out there. LOL
