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.


Five "Hunters" Bagged As Well

Stay outta the cornfield this time of year. This is more than last year I believe and in one day too. You ever see anyone missing toes - - well.

Update: It was three last year just about the same time.

Five people were shot while deer hunting Sunday in separate incident

From a DNR officer -
“I would strongly urge hunters to reconsider hunting in these conditions with such dense fog,” said Allen Crouse, recreational safety officer for the DNR. “It just isn’t safe.”

No shit Cisco - if you can't see don't shoot. It's pretty simple actually.


  1. No but maybe part of a little toe.

  2. We had rain last night and wind. Snow in the mountains around us. Laying pipe today!

  3. Maybe they should add that it's not a good idea to drink beer or whiskey until after the hunt...

  4. Alas, deer hunting has a long, tragic history as a dangerous pastime. I grew up in an area of upstate New York that attracted dilletante deer hunters from NYC. Many had next to nothing in the way of outdoor skills or hunting knowhow. It's surprising their outings didn't end badly more often than they did, but every year there were a few people shot by mistake, hunters lost, game-law vioiations and so on.

  5. There's actually more hurt done by people running into these things. It is big negative. These deerski are corn fed - healthy and huge.

    There are some I'm sure who think they can lower their food coast but it never works out like that.

    Thanks for the visit.
