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.


New Rule - No Huffing Or You Pay More

Things must be bad in the cornfield when municipalities feel the need to draft new laws and penalties for sniffing inhalants.

Times have changed. What they had to worry about when I/we cruised up there was this. From a post dated 9/27/08


  1. I was just thinking the same thing. Old Jules left a comment on my 4-H post that made me think about how times have changed. Throw a rock at a kid on a bike now and instead of the constable taking you home to face your parents, you'd be in the back of a cruiser heading for juvenile hall. Damn system.

  2. I would have been in the juvenile system for sure for some of the stuff I got caught doing Teresa.

    Where the cops were with the shenanigans I mention is unknown. Only did this a couple times and I wasn't the only one. This is what gear heads did on weekends.

    Drag race/chase girls and drink beer. That's what we did back then and it was a blast!

  3. let me guess you're a chevy man. Probably drank PBR At the Happy trails too

  4. never drank the pbr but the rest -well.
