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.


Bang The Drum

Just a little bit anyway. The weather starting the first of the month has been soooo nice. Went golfing for the first time this afternoon after work. Came in with 40 which included a triple bogey. Pared out the last three holes which was nice. Trust me I'm a shitty golfer. Hate keeping score and generally don't but you always have an idea.

First hole was an easy par with two good shots and a birdie putt that came close. First time out and first hole par. It was a success already. The very ugly triple bogey came on the next hole after a great tee shot. Birdied #3 with a rewarding downhill fairly straight 20 footer. We mowed our greens for the first time with out five new $7500 mowers and the ball was rolling so well. Par bogey bogey and hit and putted like the good golfers and pared out the last three. It's so easy when it's working good it really is. Guys like me who can't hit as far as they used to who mishit a shot well then pretty much you're playing for a bogey. I couldn't hit 'em any better than I did today.

It's supposed to be fun damn it and it was.

As a side note for the most part seven months went by from the time shorts weren't worn anymore for the year until it was warm and nice enough to wear them again.
