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 Decent Chuckle

The only thing lacking here is that if all the motorcycles would have fallen over like dominos. Other than that it's got everything for more than one chuckle.

There will never be any chuckle videos here that show people obviously getting hurt badly. Mercan's find humor in that and there are a number of tb programs that do so and numerous other sources as well. This fellow in my opinion hurts himself at an acceptable level to show this but the fact of the matter he could have easily been killed at one point.

 It's just plain funny.


  1. I love your header!!!

  2. Dood was out of the frame but Man! I'd'a liked to watch him scramble down that tractor! His top half was moving faster than his bottom half comin' down that hill, too. funny stuff ....
    VERY Rune-ish lookin' boulders in yer header there, 'Fly. Great Shot ....

  3. He was probably sore for awhile but it was the pride that took the big hit.

    There were so many and a couple in that picture bear a resemblance to some of these in Sego Canyon.


  4. That is bad luck. How come he comes flying round the corner as if he had been hit?

    1. Not bad luck Tony. Every bit his fault for not securing his trailer properly and then the tractor as well when he left the seat knowing by then he apparently was on a fairly steep incline not noticeable in the video.
