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.


It's Like This

Never looked at the news from the internets or on the tube for several days so it's just about like usual in the sense that I don't know shit cept for we are shooting in another country but we can't do anything to assist in a country in Africa that is out of control as well. Escalated in Afghanistan and found another to go kill in. Thanks for that bama. 

Didn't play much and basically worked and used muscles that were lazy to say the least and was stiffer than shit on Saturday but it got better of course. It will be a very busy summer for me as there is a fair amount of work to be done on two houses we are working on.

There is a hint of green in south central Colorado but it is very dry. Here are several pictures that were in the camera.


  1. See what happens when you go outta town? Another war erupts. I feel the same, why aren't we helping the people of Africa who are being killed by their fellow countrymen and have been for a very long time? Anyone who believes Libya is, in any way, a humanitarian effort is purely delusional. But, the delusional like being so. They're not about to give it up easily. Or without a fight, apparently. Nice photos. Like the header: Little Outhouse on the Prairie.

  2. That is an excellent and fun comment as well. Thank you for that T.

  3. Now thats a good lookin black lab!

  4. Yes he is. His looks make up for his lack of brains.

  5. I prefer the company of my German Shepherd to most people. At least I don't have to listen to her repeat some lie FOX "News" promotes like it's the gospel truth.
