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.


Have A Little Alabama High Test

 I just became a bit familiar with the OCMS and some of their songs I'm getting a big charge out of such as the case is here.There is a video here that is done in this small studio that is a bit better than the one below. It's fun damn it and these guys look like they know how to have some.


  1. Nice performance. Thanks.

    Hope today's better for you than yesterday.

    Hang in there amigo.

  2. I saw OCMS perform live last year at the All Good Music Festival in West Virginia. Bluegrass maestros they are!

  3. This is fun stuff you guys. I'd go see them too. I get a huge kick outta this song.

  4. Reefer madness. LOL

    Ya all come back now, Ya hear.

  5. I like both the Alabama song and the singers. It's all refreshing and rhythmical.
    Besides,for a a while, it makes one forget about the...debt ceiling:)

  6. Those dumb shits out in DC need a bit of High Test to mellow out Duta.
