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.

It Is A Real Countdown Now

A quickly done and terrible video showing what I will be seeing when I wake up the morning of 10/1/11. I'm excited/happy and glad this all came together the way it did. This will be a fine place to live and with the work done the last two+ days this is ready to go. All I have to do is bring groceries. A couple minor issues but no big deal.

Have a good one everybody!

  2. I'm happy for you. I, too, have a map on my wall. It's a topo of the Owl Canyon area, my all time favorite hike. They make the best art.

  3. I like that the chairs point out toward the window views and not at a TV shrine.

  7. Thanks you guys and since I kinda know all of you - MM64 (Lascar Road) on I25 between Wallyburg and Colorado City. 4 miles east on the north side of the road. The only place with a lot of trees.

    You drive on the JFK Memorial highway and come this way please stop and at least say hello.
