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.


Right Wingers Were Ugly Mean In Denver Yesterday

This photo is damning and the pit pug Malkin is front and center. This douche bag with the sign was around the podium where a parade of wingers spewed their hate and lies. Tancredo was one-member him? There is a video and article here courtesy of Progress Now Colorado. Had it on for six minutes and became sick.

Media Matters Colorado covers some of the shit spewed over the radio waves and in print about this. I cannot fathom at times why what is said on AM radio in the Denver market can and or should be allowed into the public domain.

At times think I should post some example that happens on a daily basis but realize you've heard the same somewhere else as it's what permeates the airwaves all over the country. There is something very wrong with many of these people.


  1. Today's photo is super! Details?

  2. Chaco Canyon jeg. A picture of a picture. Found doing it that way produced about the same quality as scanning and is so much faster. Hopefully I'll be able to get back down there again. Thanks-t

  3. Excellent picture! How did your trip go? To bad your trip to Denver was spoiled. Those people piss me off and will never go away, Sons of B's!

  4. Isn't it nice they can do this. Bush wouldn't let protesters near him. Remember Free Speech Zones?
