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.


For Two Mornings And I'm Outta Here

There's a post below where I said the weather broke. For two mornings and then in the afternoon  it turned to shit. That was Monday and Tuesday. The next two were shitty all day barely reaching 50 on one. Today the sun is out and it's very nice and will remain like this for several days for sure.

I'm outta here after work because of the picture below because of the two round heads on the left that I did not see when I took it. I have to see them again and try to get to the ledge I could not reach last weekend. So it's out to Utah after work.

Here there are no leaves no flowers and pretty much just the remnants of winter. I'll go where there's a chance of some adventure and possibility of finding things that are not around these parts. It's going to be 80. Bring it on and have a fine one all of you.


  1. A couple of friends from Moab are at Firehouse Ruin today. It looks like you have some great fun ahead of you! Have a good weekend!

  2. Thanks Teresa - I'm going to try real hard to do just that. You have a good one too.
