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.

Drought - Horses And The Economy

Put it together and you get situations like this.


Dire straights indeed many places. There are two horses here and they have it pretty good. Talk about huge pets. I'm just glad they're not mine.

  3. They're using this as an excuse to open up a horse slaughter house. Currently horses sent for food, Europe and Japan went big on horse meat after Mad Cow hit the news are trucked to Mexico or Canada. Surprisingly our Tea Party Governor that normally gets wet panties over helping business is against opening the slaughter house, she's a horse owner.

    1. What the hell do ya do anyway. Giant pets and for what. They turn into something that you feed and that's about it.
