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.


Kilt B'ar Follow-Up

Yes I do want guvment in my life for a lot of reasons. On 12/4 put this post up. State Record For Kilt B'ar  Did not think much of how this man went into a bears hibernation headquarters and killed it. Although there were tracks from the day before this animal I'm sure was drowsy and was probably in the process of calling it a year. It seems the DOW is taking a good look at this and I'm glad we have an agency to do this.

Can you imagine what it would be like if the repugs abolished the DOW across this country and took these regulations out of people's lives? At best that would be absurd just like dismantling anything else these crazy bastards think is wrong for their Amerika.

Good on Colorado's DOW !!


  1. While I think it a good thing that the DOW is looking into this item, I think it'd be just fine to let it alone. Crawling into a cave after a bear seems like a pretty good way to clean up the gene pool - and not the bear gene pool.
