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.

Killers Behind The Wheel

FORT COLLINS — A 9-year-old's death, allegedly caused by a distracted cellphone user, is behind a new push to force Coloradans to put their cellphones away while driving.

This just pisses me off and it's happened too many times.

I broke the umbilical cord of a land line years ago but I understand that I have a responsibility to others in the use of that device. For the most part the phone is not used while driving unless it is set up that you DO NOT HAVE TO TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THE ROAD!

What's so hard to understand about that.

  1. Even that is not good enough. Having your eyes on the road doesn't mean your mind is connected. you could be concentrating on what you hear.
