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.


I Get It Bud

Veterans do get a certain level of respect for obvious reasons. Guys like this not so much. In fact in this case probably none for obvious reasons.

Mentality displayed here associated with the military does not mean it's positive or correct. It's a negative actually.


  1. I see the fish symbol amid all the other advertising. Just another humble Christian.

  2. We're all familiar with type of display - - - but this bothered me. This picture has been around too long and wasn't sure about this but did it anyway.

  3. This kind of zealotry is always frightening. It's the kind of thinking that tries to divide and conquer.

    What a wonderful panel of rock art in you header photo.

  4. ditto...typed with right hand only...ugh

  5. This is where we're at though and still headed that way. I certainly agree TE.

    Then close by those were these that I came across. These are cool as well. It's also where Art on a Ledge was as well.

    TMoon get healed up real soon. Second that ugh.

  6. It really does take all kinds...you should meet Mope-head Annie...she is running for President of the USA and lives right here in Delta!


  7. Best of all is that he is driving a high MPG Honda Fit.
    I am sure he affectionately calls it a [rice burner]. LOL
    I will be in one of those rice burner countries S/Korea for the next 3 weeks.
    See you when/if I get back, the day AFTER the election. :-)

  8. A step further please - Mope-head??
