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.

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.
