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.


Colorado Springs Low-Lifes

You know the place - a bastion for the religious right and the military industrial complex - yea that place.

Here a special guy-

He stole it alright and they say it was up to 400k but the judge didn't put him in jail. No doubt there is specialness here.

And a special girl too.

Drug him for almost two miles after jumping into her vehicle and driving away knowing it was about to be towed and catches this poor fellow in the tow rope. I'm sure she is sorry.

It always needs to be said when the Springs gets it's ass kicked that there's are a bunch of lefties who live there that fight like hell and better than most.


  1. A perfect match of pic and post!

  2. Yeah, but Colorado Springs isn't anything like it was when I was there on my honeymoon back in '62.

  3. The Springs has never done much for me and for the last 20 years I been around it much. Last time I was it was a bad experience. Come to think about it someone was supposed to get a tour inside the Cheyenne nuke cave. Have to ask about that. I bet it was a total blast in 62. Colorado in the early 70's was maybe the best place to be ever.

    I understand spring has almost arrived for some of you down there.
