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.


Why Some Leave

Maybe because enjoying warm weather is just plain over and done with. 10° is a tough number as well.

Needs to be said "think they need to leave". Don't think too much Fly you just get yourself in trouble. 

Struggling to be positive the bright side since the sun is gone has been gone and won't be seen much is the wind hasn't been blowing. 


  1. Many relish in the change of seasons and of those - many have no choice in the matter. You're not exactly balmy out there but the sun is around. You get it all TMoon.

  2. I'm in Tallahassee, Florida right now and it's 78 degrees. Unfortunately, the cold weather is headed this way and it will be chilly at Bear Creek.

  3. I walked to the store and it was pretty damn cold Not complaining just saying. Nothing redeeming about it except to say I froze my ass. It's 12 now. Have fun.

  4. Well at least you don't have the wind...it's horrid here. Although, we DO NOT have the snow....go away snow....go away until the corn is at the elevator!!!!


  5. Wait and some kids will make a snowman somewhere near by. That always makes it better.
