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.


Ones That Got Away For Now

When out hiking it's important to be looking around as in this case where binocs showed

these creatures not seen from a distance. Click on it and look below the red dots.

There was no doubt an attempt was going to be made to get to them. They are along the red line. Got up there and tried from the left and then the right but no banana. Ended up going way around on the right and coming down on the green line.

While traversing in front and below got a bit of a glimpse of a couple of them. Again they are by the red dots.

Of course there is a way to get there some better than others. With a keen eye you can find them as in the case here.

Around the corner above and down an easy ledge and back along the green line.

I did not see these on the way down but on the way back. Pretty cool and they look like shark fins to me.

I got down to here and was watching my footing when I stopped and looked up and saw two of the most pristine figures ever. They were just off my left shoulder. All the others were farther along.

I could not go further as it appeared to be fairly treacherous and a misstep would mean you're not maybe going to die but you're not getting anywhere without help and there is no help for miles.

Looking at the pictures as here I see a bad choice was made on where to try and get down to the ledge. It looks like one can get down where the green line points easier. These things will be had and I want to see the rest of these creatures badly. I may very well go back again on Friday and look for more as well. The weather is still crappy here. Have a good one and thanks for stopping.


  1. So, it would seem, 'tagging' has been around for a long time.

  2. Wow. They are pristine. What fun. To me, these are almost irrefutable evidence that visitors from elsewhere, star people, were a part of their lives.

  3. It has Fearguth and they were very good at it too.

    I'm pretty sure I may go out there this weekend Teresa to try and get to these and find others. There is not much to do here.

  4. WOW! Those are amazing. HUGE! AMAZING! I'm speachless.


  5. re: your new head. Did the sheep put up that sign? :)

  6. That was one I turned around for Teresa. It has to be taken but it isn't very good.
