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.


It Is Possible To Make Change

Did it this week at corporate level on an issue chapping my ass for some time. At least that's what I'm being told that there are meetings happening to institute price changes for end users to at least put some limits on exorbitant pricing that penalized way too much those who were making the choice to use these products. It will take a bit but I believe them. We'll see as I'm not going away for awhile anyway.

In this case implied maybe it was time to take a different direction in what we purchase. Talk about action real quick like!! If only we could get a bit of positive action out of the many slugs there are in DC.

Headed to the front range and have opened up the comments again as I won't be around a computer to moderate them. On my puter with word verification I can't see the whole form to fill it out so can't use that . Hope I don't get spammed too badly.

Have a good one friends.


  1. I really dig the picture of the two Easter Island statues on a major diet. I would like to know where they are so I can go to worship them. They look like Cosmic Gods. LOL.

  2. A lot of people don't like these RZ but I do and I see them daily. They get dreses up on Halloween.

    It's been nice to get away TC and people seemed happy to see me-imagine that
