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.

Just Plain Flabbergasted Big Time

Saw something today that has me shaking my head in extreme confusion. The picture below is not it but something needs to be said about this as well.

 It is not the first time I have seen trash strewn about by a bear at this very same place and even a couple times the dumpster has been tipped over. Personally I'd  put a padlock on this so I would not have to continually pick up after bears and particularly this can happen in the heat of the summer when things are smelling really really good.


This is on a road that I walk or ride a lot and it leads from the west edge of town and dead ends at the golf course that sits within the boundaries of a state park. Smooth surface riding with little traffic in the park. There is a picture below that I'm hoping can't be seen yet as an explanation is in order.

Earlier this year when it was wet there was a mud hole. The people who live here only turn right as there is no other way out. The driveway is very wide but these people whether wet or dry were driving through this pot hole every time including entering as well. I'm looking at this and was confused then too as to why anyone would do that over and over when it's more than easily avoided. I don't understand that and what comes next I understand even less.

So what did these people do?????????

Click on the picture below and see for yourself.














Normal people don't do this kinda shit! Putting a piece of asphalt in the pot hole to lessen the impact a bit instead other obvious and better alternatives.

It's a different breed of cat around here I tell you and I don't like it at all for the most part and I'm gonna try to move to the west slope. That will be hard to accomplish and will be pursued a bit before I head back to Mexico I'm thinking in Oct.

I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to that and leaving this nonsense behind as there is another post coming about another matter.

  3. That's very sad that people throw trash on the road and nobody does anything constructive about it.

  4. If the bears don't behave I think it's worth trying to wrestle with them, my friend...

    1. The size of the pile of bear skat I saw 40 meters from the house this morning indicates a bear the size of which could take care of both of us and want more.
