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.


Results Of The Day And Plan For Tomorrow

Did receive the fuel additive mentioned before and we are testing. It might not be much but if it works that will be way too cool. Hopes are high at this time.

Did go fishing and it was very nice. I was surprised that I did not catch any. Didn't even see one.

I am driving to Salida tomorrow to do several things. It's about three hours away through the mountains. I want to listen to Amy Goodman who will be there at 11:30. While there a visit to BACK ROADS to get the best shredded chicky burrito with the other best green chili to be had anywhere. A stop at Leadville where for possibly the best chocolate malt $2.65 can buy. Will try to fish somewhere either on the Arkansas around Salida or the Colorado when I get closer to home. Then there's the mileage test. Shaping up to be a good day.

From today

  1. Salida. Wow. Hadn't seen that locale name in many many years. A friend of my parents lived in Crestone; we were through there way back in 1975. Beautiful country. . .
