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.


Local Snow Record Set Today

A short video about the record with some of the locals. Luther's in it. Must be about 90 and came outta the wheat fields of North Dakota. Cancer survivor and mows fairways three days a week at a local golf course. I like Luther a lot.

A new record for snow was just announced of 450". All that I know is that most of it's still on the ground and it's 20 fucking degrees outside and it's long past due to pay homage to the Sun God. If only the sonofabitch would show himself that would help. Update-the sun did finally come out this afternoon and the temp went into the mid 30's

It's time for spring and a number of times over the years have been out doing things and in shorts this time of year! We are maybe two weeks behind in respect to being warm enough for melting to occur. Depending on how warm it gets and how soon that happens the runoff could prove to be dramatic and damaging. Many places in Colorado face the issue of flooding this spring.
