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.


One Of The If's Of Packing

Yes I would if I lived in the area and had to be outside or was vulnerable in any way. You don't stand a chance even with a weapon when animals and in this case four are coming hard at you with the intention of hurting you bad and maybe killing you as in this case.

Female jogger 'mauled to death' by four pit bulls in Los Angeles

BTW - I will be in Silver City, NM sometime this morning and I did not bring a gun.


  1. I am, for sure, an animal lover...especially dogs. Many defend this breed but I read too many reports of attacks. I, personally, would not own any animal that had the potential of hurting me or mine. Have fun in Silver City...looking forward to pics!

  2. Pit bulls are illegal to breed or import in England now for about 15 years following a round of events like this. The ones still there are aging, in a few years they will be gone. Other breeds do this as well, but few are as good at crushing bone and tearing flesh as this breed, designed for it by selective breeding.

  3. is one expected to be armed in Silver City NM...?

  4. Gunners are ready all the time. I am not a gunner. and all they fear I do not.

  5. My Grandparents love T or C in New Mexico...you might also!
