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.


Fodor Glava On The Loose

It must have been him who scared this women so badly outside Grand Junction she wrecked her car after peeing her pants.

That damn Fodor.

Of course after loosing control of your car and crashing because you saw a vampire gets you out of receiving a ticket.

Things are a bit different out there in the far west of Colorado. Could it be that it's so close to Utah.


  1. A good possibility. But what a beautiful, beautiful photo.

  2. There were a couple others that were fun too Leslie. I spent about two minutes there. Today I went back and and the white columbine was laying over probably from asprinkler. Put another one up from the same place that is all those dark blue columbines. These are not natives but I like the color a great deal.

    I think one day this weekend I will go out to my work place and concentrate on taking early morning pictures when I'm not on duty.

    Generally that means it will probably be a bust.

    Glad you liked that.
