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.


Three Real Dumb Asses Get Shot In One Day Out In The Cornfield

It's true and read the damn thing and dumb is an appropriate word. It's Bambi time out there and we're talking shotguns with slugs. One guy shot himself in the foot. I bet that hurt real bad. Chances are high that don't happen in the future if he decides to go "hunting" again.  LINK


  1. Shooting themselves and each other is the traditional way of hunting accidents. If you had trees in the cornfield you could have hunters falling out of their tree stands like we do back east.

  2. Deer season in California opened in the fall, when my stepdad had cows on the summer range. We'd spend the week before rounding them all up and putting them into a fenced meadow pasture so there was no way a hunter could mistake one for a deer. One year we caught a hunter in the meadow trying to shoot a deer that was hiding amongst the cows. The sheer idiocy of the average deer "hunter" was appalling. Shouldn't there be a test given before licenses are handed out?

  3. It never ends you guys. Around elk country in NW Colorado there's a lot of rescues that go on as well from being lost,shot,hurt or stuck. It's hard to educate those who refuse to learn but I agree. There are hunting safety courses that are mandatory to get a license but that alone is not enough.

  4. Two or three more got shot in the last day or so. Sheez!

  5. Don't forget the guys that slice themselves up trying to cut up the carcass! And there is always the one or two or so spouses that try to 'biff' the other spouse and say it was a random bullet from some other hunter.


  6. I hadn't heard about the the slicing thing but I do not doubt that either.

    Even more were shot out there in the last day or so.
