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.

Never Been Able To Understand This Logic

A couple days ago a tornado ripped up a town on the front range leaving one dead and caused other damage as you can imagine. Two churches will hold a tent service tomorrow.
"The worship service will focus on praising God for His amazing protection over the lives of the people in the community during the storm"
Always after a catastrophe there is rhetoric such as this. It makes no sense to me and I question if those that say and believe this way have any reasoning abilities at all. I am sorry for your misfortune and have contributed to the relief effort but seriously the reality is there was no being controlling this event and if there was they sent this to you. Trying to be half ass nice here but this shit gets so damn old.

  1. Not being a big student of theology (understatement alert!), I might have gotten this wrong. Nevertheless, I thought one of the big philosophical differences between Christianity and other religions was that Christianity says that their god doesn't make decisions like this. In short, their god doesn't intervene in the affairs of people on Earth, and doesn't make tornadoes hit or miss houses.

    So, yes, I never got this, either.
