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.


Three Of Ft Carson's Finest Take A Hit

This is too funny but  a bit sad as well that these guys felt the need to do this. They will be punished and when it's the Army's turn they could send them to Afghanistan but they've probably been there a couple times already.

These pot shops are like trying to rob a bank. You're just not going to get away with it. Military brains trickle down from the top to the grunts on the ground I guess.


  1. I long for the day when medical marijuana becomes a reality in PA. Actually, we would be better off as a nation if we legalized growing hemp. We could make grocery bags and take out carries out of hemp. We could make trash bags out of hemp which then biodegrades. Instead we are stuck with shit plastic which never degrades.

  2. It's obvious how benign hemp is and what a tremendous positive this would be if it was possible to grow.

    They will not even have a discussion about this. These slugs in DC want to turn this country into a Third World one.

    The do gooders are beside themselves here about the numbers requesting a card and all they can do is put more restrictions on it because they just can't stand it that his herb actually helps people.
