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.


Poll Results On Tattoos

Pretty straight forward. Seven people say they have none. I was one of those. One said they have just one indiscreet little one. Onother who didn't get to vote but wrote said and I think told me they had two. Those two are female.

What can be learned from this?? Absolutely nothing.

I see so many tattoo's and it seems . . . well different and think sometimes why did you go do that. Just saying here now so don't anybody get pissed off but I think one big reason is people want you to look at their tattoo instead of the other/them.

In the spirit of kinder and gentler in fairness it needs to be said - that when these very same people look at moi they're saying to themselves "That guy needs a "too" bad!".


  1. Tattoos are banned by the Bible, and if God said it, I believe it!

  2. dang Fly, since it's banned by God, maybe I'd better get rid of it.

  3. hey you were a cute little guy. what happened?

    1. See the last paragraph in the post. It's the shit's ain't it!
