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.

Get To Work And Be A Leader For Election Reform Instead

Colorado's two most prominent Democratic incumbents are kicking off their 2010 re-election efforts in earnest with fundraising soirees in Denver and Washington, D.C., this week.

And discontent with Salazar's moderate stances has some left-leaning Democrats hoping for a primary challenger.


I am one who is very discontented with Saladbar but that's another story. All politicians are more than likely doing the same. We need changes right now in where campaign money comes from and the amount needed to run we all know that. Change will never come from those guarding the hen house. We're screwed because they will never voluntarily take themselves off the gravy train.
