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.

  1. We should be gone already. My biggest disappointment, among many, around our current administration. Promises broken, hope crushed. People forget that those numbers represent individual lives that are lost. Son, and daughters, possibly, husbands, brothers, fathers. So many lives affected by the terrible decisions of these Masters of War.


    On another note, somewhat, I love the photo of the country church in your header. Nice angle to it.

  2. An American soldier recently died in S/Iraq while out on a "mission".
    Thought the big O our War of Choice president said that was not gonna happen.
    To hell with any democrat that still supports this president.
    Did I mention Libya yet?:-)
    This is the third W term headed by the Big O.

  3. I used to think that there was a chance we could stop some of the war crap but that will not be allowed to happen. O=W Isn't that sad but it's also the cold hearted truth.
