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.


Outta Here

West but north too this time. I have nothing except that I've linked to a place that like a lot.

Old Jules puts great stuff up at So Far From Heaven.

And Fluffy's Friday Story is so good this week. I'm beginning to look forward to Friday's just because of these stories. Both of these places are worth a look if you have a moment or two.

I'm not sure what lies out there this time but I need to revisit this particular place as I will not be getting back in this area or here for that matter maybe forever after I move. Have a fun and safe weekend weekend. It always needs to be said - that I appreciate you coming here to visit.


  1. Hi Fly: Thanks for the kind words plugging the blog. My scribblings don't get many visitors, but the day you posted this and the next day after the number of visitors doubled.

    People read you and respect your opinions.

    Thanks amigo

  2. You're welcome Jules-others did it for me.

    As for the other thing-well there's few left who speak to me and that's kinda the way it is. Skip 2 Colorado and I go round on this as to why because the same has happened to her as well.

    Giv'em hell and don't take no shit!
