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.

What Do You Get When You Mix

Crazy ass religious kooks-the military and a whole boat load of nutters??

The answer to that is Colorado Springs,Colorado

A man ran across a street to help a 62-year-old who had fallen and hit his head, only to rip off the injured man by stealing his wallet.


There is more bad shit that goes on in this city I tell you. I'm glad I can easily avoid this place. They do have a cool zoo if that's worth anything.

Another thing is there are a bunch of lefty's that are very vocal and active and a tip of the hat to the good guys!!

  1. Got a sister in hiding on the Palmer Divide. I told her about the Springs, Focus, the Academy, etc...but she and her husband were charmed by the scenery, and the climate, and the fact that it's NOT New Mexico, where they'd lived for 35 years...so they chose to ignore me, to their chagrin...

  2. Jesus H. Christ. What kind of creep rips off an old man that has fallen and hurt himself? Fucking worthless prick.

    No one is immune to violence now..no one and no place. I don't care how much you pay for your home..violence can and will enter your life at some point.

  3. you know that Springs and Denver are not typical of most Colorado population centers and what happens in both I don't believe hurts Colorado's image, yet it does display the economic frustrations of those who live there.
