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.


Missing This

When I watch the fishing video's of mine it makes me realize even more how much I miss fishing. There are no places like these anywhere close and any trout found are stockers. In this case a stocker is NOT a car.

Crank it up !!!

BTW just the same time as posting this a rattlesnake was dispatched just out in the street by a couple guys. Sounded like it may have been this way.


  1. Some nice dinners to be had in that clip. By the way, like your new header. Cosmic, man......

  2. Better get your fishing done before all the streams in Colorado are ruined, like the Animas.

  3. I was just thinking of myself here you guys and not of the tragedy Fearguth brings up. I wonder how bad it will be and I understand shit is still flowing in.

    1. And hardly a word of it on the news...


  4. With that header I expected Pink Floyd's Astronomy Domine, but I Love the Cars tie in with the video beloved sport. if I remember correctly, your fishing pics are how I found the Oak Creek Forum originally. Yes I heard on the news 500 gallons/minute are still flowing out of that gold mine.

  5. Look what Linda says and she's a lot closer to it than I. It must be hard to watch that. Some guvmint agency took responsibility I believe. The anti - guvmint forces will have a hey day with that.

  6. Bought a boat few years ago. Then got another. Been fishing with it 5 times. There is something seriously wrong here

  7. Nice to see you're still kicking Truth! Last time I was in Illinois the catfish from the Mississippi were the best I ever had. I understand your boat and fishing situation.
