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.

Plane Crashes Plenty-I Wouldn't Fly In These Mountains In The Wintertime In A Small Plane To Save My Ass

There was the incident in Denver yesterday and yes those people were lucky. It was very windy but there were no fatality's.

Not so for this crash just the day before on Saturday.

Nor so just a few short hours ago locally only a few miles away where two more died.

There have been a number of crashes here alone over the years not to mention all over the state. I am not a pilot but have flown Ultralites for a period some time ago. Some of the best flying can be had during the winter but not when it's snowing!

I would take a ride sometime maybe but the pilot would have to be very experienced and never fucking ever would I even consider it if the pilot had never flown in mountains before.
