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.


Road Problems - Two Cents A Gallon Worth

Back 10/20 put a post up about what seemed to me the massive amount of oil and gas traffic around Bloomfied, NM. This morning I see the Bloomfield city  council approved a resolution for the 2012 election a gas tax of 2 pennys a gallon.

I don't know enough to comment on the particular dynamics there - associations or agreements that may be in place except to say I believe it's fair to say the oil and gas corporations are responsible for the deterioration of the streets there. Make them pay if you can. Hell of a lot easier to say than get done.

The council also approved a resolution to include on the March 2012 city election ballot a 2-cent tax on every gallon of gasoline sold in Bloomfield. The tax will be used to pave and repair Bloomfield streets.
