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.


Windy As Hell

That it has been. Can't get the picture I want to upload. Just took this one a moment ago abd it's 38 out and a 25mph wind or more. Last week this county won the award for the unhealthiest in Colorado. Today it wins this. Bad numbers for the poor counties. Later gotta get a bunch done starting now.

Huerfano County, which includes Walsenburg, has an average annual income just over half the statewide average and an unemployment rate that crept over 10 percent last year. It also is home to the state's highest rate of births to girls ages 15 through 17. And 54 percent of babies born in Huerfano County were to unmarried women.


  1. It's 88 here---my AC is running--and just as windy.

  2. Taking a break for lunch and it's 53 and not so windy but sun remains out. I think I'm getting things accomplished.

  3. between the snow banks at the driving range today is was 60 and sure was glad to being hitting the little f&%$ing thing again.

    why does golf torment us so?
    Rory holds on to win...

  4. Let me guess.... a Jesus-loving county, right?

  5. It's been horrible down here too.
    That's a scary picture of the spider today.
    I can't get blogger to let me post, but I can comment. Does this make sense?

  6. Is that a brown widow?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latrodectus_geometricus

  7. I left on Tuesday morning and the wind continued to blow hard for a least three more days. Plus it wasn't all that warm. That's not a complaint really.

    I don't know what that is Nunya but it's not a brown widow. It still lives somewhere.
