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.


"Leave Goat Man Alone"

There's someone out there in Utah in the middle of nowhere who has his own goat agenda of some sort. It is completely unclear what that might be but there must be worry involved.

This is actually kinda funny.


  1. In love it. Maybe he just wants to know what it's like to be wildlife.

    I didn't see your tattoo poll 'til now....

  2. It seems somebody knows what this fellow is really up to. It won't be long and "goat person" will have to be contacted by the powers at large because - - - well just because ya see.

    Does TE care to reveal her # of 'toos.

    1. One, small and discreet, but so many people have them now and large ones, "body art." A checkout at the grocery store in town has several, and I would have never taken her as one to have any. Goes to show, people do have secret lives, although not so secret with the tattoos telling something....

      Stretch looks like he means business....

    2. Thank you for your candor TEvangeline.

      That's not Stretch but a friends cat I saw for the first time yesterday.

  3. Made me remember John Barth's Giles Goat-Boy.

    1. Not many chose this type of activity. Who knows.

  4. I hope to publish this rainbow on Sunday.


  5. Clearly a refugee from Mossy Head, Florida, who is love-lorn.

    (Google "Mossy Head goat" if you're wondering what I'm talking about ;).
