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.


The Hub Of The Christian Right - MURDER CENTRAL

Colorado Springs the heart of all good because jeebus told them to build. Might as well put 'em where the military complex is alive and stronger than most other places. Just makes things real handy ya see there.

There are some nice things there but when you fill the place up with military trash and christian crazy's what you end up is SHIT HOLE CENTRAL and that's what it is.

  1. sorry love :( mmmm, and I may have you beat when it comes to residing in the black heart of the military-industrial-complex. *sigh*

  2. I know and understand. *sigh sigh*

  3. Morning amigo:

    Pack enough human beings into a place and filter their outlooks and livelihoods to a particular set of values and priorities and you've got one version of shithole central. It's not the only way it can happen, but it's a way that works everytime.

    Nice seeing you posting. Love that header.

    Have a great one

  4. Thanks Jules and when it comes to the springs I always have to say there are some real hardcore progressive fighters there that I've seen in action.

    There's so much bad shit that goes on there and a bunch of real quality lowlifes in the area for sure.
