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.

A Typical Morning

This is a pretty quiet place around here. Generally most mornings are like this. It's just very pleasant. Not perfect but better than where I came from. Enjoy the humongous trees and towering palms that seem to be everywhere.

  1. Judging by your video, El Nogalito is indeed a quiet, beautiful place.
    Bye the way, the evil quiet at Chernobyl. I wrote twice about that place. If you wish to read the stuff just put the word CHERNOBYL in the Search box at the left top of my blog.

    1. I did just that Duta. There was a young woman who blogged about that. Carried a geiger counter and rode a fast bike. The site is gone now but she got up close and personal with the place. Pictures were something else. Nothing was alive anywhere.

    1. Maybe not so much. Blue tooth speaker broke. Not so bad. Camera fell while taking it out of my pocket and broke. Really bad. Left binoc behind somewhere. Old expensive and a tool for 30 years. Just as bad.

      I hope it's over with. Not much left.

  4. Thanks for sharing this beautiful scenery and peaceful setting. I might not have to take my blood pressure meds if I were looking at that every morning!
