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.


Denver Takes A Stand Against Bigotry

This may or may not be a the best law but it's a start and it at least will give many and not just Mexicans the hope and a feeling that they will not be arrested and sent back to wherever. To have this hanging over your head must be a real bitch.

What gets me is in this paper when there is an article such as this or just about anything that concerns people or ideas from the left the comments are all so negative.

And it's not just here. The mood of this country is one of hate and intolerance of any kind and it's growing stronger and is shared by Repuglicans in congress. If you think this bill is going to be passed you will be wrong. No way will the racists in DC do so and after all its from the dims so there ya go.


  1. Three cheers for the Denver City Council!

  2. Yup you have that but then there's
    this! Really disgusting.

  3. And then there's Tom Tancredo. What's he up to these days?

  4. Unsure FG but when the time is right he will be given the podium as usual.
