Mentioned before how outwardly friendly the locals have been here in Nagalito. Not just here but everywhere. Including of course the south side of Puerto Vallarta.
From store clerks to vendors on the street including walkers like myself you are likely to be greeted along with a wave and a smile if you don't get to it first. That includes the whole nine yards men,women young and old and the kids as well.
Had no clue it would be like this and I find it to be a very nice part of life that is different back "home". People do a pretty good job of it all in all but not like here.
In the month I have been here there have been four people who have not responded to being greeted. All have been gringos. It's true. Any more I say nothing to what is obvious as I am myself a gringo. Just saying!
Still no whale.
4/16/17This 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.
