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.


Really ??

From the mouth of Colorado Tea Nutter candidate for governor the one and only Dan (I'm OK you're the one that's nuts) Maes at a get together in Durango last Thursday.

He's talking to me and maybe you too. This asshole touches me looking for the evil he'll draw back a bloody stub.

You see a lot of his posters out in the country here in NW Colorado. I don't think he has a chance and the state goopers wanted him to step down but he would not. He's on a mission ya know there ya see.


  1. Hallelujah. Feel the E-vil. We are no longer fighting people, we are fighting the system. Wait! He running for office in the system, in the evil system. Must mean he is evil too. He needs to run for a church, not a government.

  2. Don't you just love the way they wrap themselves in the robes of Jesus and throw away the gospels?

  3. You got that straight JC!

    And Mont we all know damn near everyone of these people do just that but yet it's the likes of JC you and I and the others that call them out on this.

    If we were in charge of the media they would not be getting this pass-thus no credibility.

  4. yup, they say the country is center right and they are going all the way with the God talk. Its scary but I don't think the voters will fall for it. They SAY the country is right of center but I don't believe it is.

  5. Hell no it's not Sue-it's a ploy that gradually changes opinion of the sheep into accepting less. Problem is that it works way too good because our side does not fight back near hard enough.

  6. He's right, you know. What he leaves out is that the evil is what he represents.

  7. Dogmatic assholes like this Tc are evil.It's just that simple. Add dangerous as well when allowed to have a mouthpiece for their hate.
