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.


You Do Not Want To Be A Coyote In Utah These Days

So they want more deer. Without a doubt there will be some big kill numbers put up at 50 smacks a head. There will be plenty who want to get in on this game.


  1. Why do chickens always look pissed??? So they hunt coyotes so they can hunt deer? huh? Have you ever seen coyote hunters, in the field??? Trucks outfitted with kennels and the gnarly dogs..yikes!!!

  2. I guess they want quick results. Then there's the guys who do it the old school way by spotting them on a cold winter day and then stalking them. That would be 50 bucks worth of effort easy.

  3. The problem with trying to get rid of coyotes is that that the more you hunt them the more cubs the females produce. They're the one animal where trying to eradicate them backfires.

  4. I have a few of both species they can have :)


  5. I don't get it. Why do they want more of the four-hooved hood rats? Coyote's main food, BTW, isn't deer. I've seen plenty of coyote scat, and what I see in their scat isn't deer fur, it's the fur of rodents -- rats and rabbits and woodchucks and so forth, oh my. Get rid of the coyotes and you have rodents out the yazoo eating your range to pieces. Talk about morons who don't know even the basics about how their own ecology works!

  6. They want the wolves as well. This deer thing for instance back in Iowa anyway is a huge problem. They will get results but my attention is how much they pay. If it was like that here I would find it very tempting to pop one off that comes close in like they do on occasion. Go show it to a badge and your 50 smacks ahead.

    Besides that I've seen deer all over in eastern Utah and that's a fact. I don't remember so many coyotes though.
