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.


Seven Spam Comments

That is since disabling comment verification sometime yesterday. Whether that's a lot or not I'm not sure. It's enough though.

The important thing they were all caught in the spam box of Blogger so that's a good thing - so far.

Your followers are gone and if you use Sitemeter that is gone as well. The gadgets and code is still there. That's what I see missing.

In addition if you have your comments open in a new window you cannot subscribe to the comments.


  1. I found some comments in my Blogger's box, that were not spam. Good thing to check this box periodically.

  2. Yah, Google's got things really screwed up with Blogger now. Maybe the goal is to get spammers so confused with all the UI changes that they give up and go back to working for a living? Well if the spammers are confused, us mere peons are even *more* confused with all the silliness going on...

  3. i h-a-t-e these changes... google totally blows. as i ranted at busted's, if it aint broken, dont fix it

  4. No shit! Things go along real smooth then someone starts thinking. Like this friend used to say "There's nothing worse than a farmer who has a welder and an idea.

    We'll all deal with the comments in the way that suits us each the best. I want Sitemeter and the Followers back.

    Have not looked in several days but never saw anything on this in the forums. Seems unusual.

  5. I spam comment overnight and that was caught.

  6. Terry agrees with you....some people should never ever get a welder in their hands, even if they are not farmers!
