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.


VERY Short Suspect On The Loose

Okay so it's a misprint but never the less it's kinda funny and some of the comments are even better. And what a crappy name to be stuck with. No wonder she wanted a different identity.

According to a press release issued by Pueblo Crime Stoppers, Kayli Clinkingbeard is described as being a 20-year-old woman, approximately 4" tall, 115 pounds with red or auburn hair and blue eyes.


  1. Clinkingbeard might work for an old fart like me. :)

  2. Knew a Clinkingbeard in school...she was...well, chubby! Love the header!

  3. There is some truth to that Fearguth. Very unusual name but not really I guess. The is a lady here with the last name of Cornfield. I keep asking her if that's for real. There are not many overweight women here TMoon. It may have something to do with genetics or do they care that much more I don't know.

  4. Love your header with the burgs through out the tree!


  5. '4 inches tall'... Not much for the police to go on.

  6. They need to keep their noses and eyes close to the ground.
