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.


Business Kinda

I have two vehicles and would like to get down to one. I need a mode of transportation that is versatile and one that fits this description is the Honda Element.

Before I can really consider it for sure one has to be looked at very close and taken for a extended drive. There are none even close to here so down to the front range to do this.

Do not plan on buying one from a dealer or anyone else for that matter but just wish to gain information as this could well be the last car I have.

There's a problem though and that is I'm cheap when it comes to cars and these things aren't.

Have a good weekend and appreciate the stop by.


  1. Once you find the vehicle that fits your needs whatever you pay is money better spent than buying something cheaper, but not getting what works for you. Hope it all turns out for the best.

  2. When I lived in Denver, I owned a 1948 Willys cab-over pickup. It was the ugliest jeep in Colorado, but it went places most others could not, and I often had to winch them out.

  3. Had to go look that up TC just to be sure. and I bet it did all that you say.

    And I tell you fella's I just got home and had an interesting time on the pursuit of an Element. I may out something up later but it may have to wait until it plays out at the end of the week. I have one if I want it and probably will. Totally impressed with this I tell you. We'll see.
