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.


What's The New Guy Gonna Have To Say Bout This??



  1. I like your header!!!


    1. Thanks and it's bland here too. Not there anymore. That was Las Vegas and now it's Roswell for a few.

  2. Beautiful photo! Love the blending subdued hues .....
    I'm wondering if the Big "G" is at it again ... and am reminded of a joke I read recently over to Mooner Johnson's (that boy ain't right):

    God and Saint Peter are sitting up to Heaven, bored out of their gourds. ‘It’s been centuries since we had any fun,’ Peter said, ‘let’s go to Venus and hit a few bars.’

    ‘Too hot on Venus,’ God tells him, ‘I don’t much care for all that heat.

    ‘OK, then, let’s go to Mars instead.’

    ‘No,’ God says, ‘too cold there. Makes my bones ache.’

    ‘What about Earth?’ Peter suggests.’Earth has the perfect climate.’

    ‘Very bad idea, Peter. I went to earth a couple thousand years ago—dated this nice Jewish girl for a short time—and people just won’t stop talking about it.’”
    Cheers! and Enjoy ....

    1. Thanks bj! It was illustrative only and didn't even put my name on it. Good yoke and wonder what the believers have to say about it. Could it be another one??

  3. That's one cool travel rig you got there, Fly!

    1. It ain't perfect Fearguth by any means and I have some issues that may require a Utube vid just because. It's easy to stay warm and I sleep much better in here than at home. It a fairly pleasant environment.

  4. Love your header!!! Your rig looks perfect...just the right size. Too bad you have some issues. Where are your pics???

  5. Oooohhhhhh, a nun! I was wondering who was going to be upset about a baby penguin!
