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.

Happy Thankgiving

Enjoy the day your family and friends and chow down heartily on that bird and every thing else on the table and laugh a lot along the way!!!

No turkey here and I'm fine with that. I have been eating fresh shrimp and red snapper bought in Puerto Vallarta. I am thankful for that. A rather simple thing but those of you who come around know that getting the chance at doing so was huge for me. I am very thankful for that as well.

Thankful I am able to even have a chance at living life in a different environment albeit simplistic never really wanted much more ever.

Thanks for coming by and have a good one!!! I'm gonna stroll down to the ocean and look for my first whale. Never have seen one and they've been around. I wonder if they'd go after a fly.

Around Town

El Nagalito is a village and small. Locals and expats. Very quiet. A couple places to pick up a bite to eat and basic food and other grocery's. Below is fish of some sort - spaghetti - and a small salad. A bottle of water was 6 pesos and the total was 46 pesos. I left a 50 which is $3.60. Wasn't the best but it was filling and had a piece of fish left over.

Meet "Hitler". He's a local and a real good pooch.

Yesterday for $8.46 I got two bus rides - the meal above - a real decent pineapple a couple tomatoes and bananas and a small loaf of bread. Not too bad.

A Bit Of Life In El Nagalito

Yesterday got on the bus and went south a few miles and bought some fresh caught fish. Not quite sure what they are as Spanish is not good. What I can say is three fish cost 30 pesos or about $2.10 and it was a treat having a couple so far.

It just beautiful here and the greenery is dense and hill/mountains go straight up. You would not believe how nice the locals are. That's a treat too.

Somewhere Else

And that is close to the pin in the picture in a small town south of Puerto Vallarta named El Nagalito.


Walked down to the ocean a half mile away and this is what it looked like. The hill/mountains are steep and the trees and particularly the palms are thick and just plain huge. Pretty impressive actually.

Internet has been real slow so it will be difficult possibly to put many pictures up. It's quiet and everyone is totally friendly. The little I was in PV it seemed like a vibrant city with something for everyone.

Have a good one!

If You Think He's A Real Special One

You are wrong.

Pope says assisted suicide is a "sin against God"

If one thinks change will be made within the church that many catholics want you will be wrong again.

The Poop himself should reflect a bit on what compassion means in matters that are none of his or the place he works for business.

The Poop and all the rest like him can kiss my ass.

Why Some Leave

Maybe because enjoying warm weather is just plain over and done with. 10° is a tough number as well.

Needs to be said "think they need to leave". Don't think too much Fly you just get yourself in trouble. 

Struggling to be positive the bright side since the sun is gone has been gone and won't be seen much is the wind hasn't been blowing.
