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.


Dougherty Sibling Update

Do you remember the nation wide manhunt?? They eventually got caught right on the intestate just outside the Huerferno County seat city of Walsenburg where they have been housed very effectively so you can sleep at night. The bail is 1.25 mil each and no one has shown up with the cabbage.

They have appeared in court several times and are being tried separately some time down the road. The latest appearance was yesterday with sibling sister Lee Grace. Her public defender has filed dozens of motions all of which have been denied I believe with several no's again yesterday.

I find the article from today's Pueblo paper a bit troubling in the way this woman was questioned. The reason I post this is if you do not remember the fear factor the badges and the media ratcheted up with this family in the end I was surprised they were not all killed but at the time the public was close by. These crooks are not being defended here but what I'm saying is given the intensity of the badges and the piece today there is no doubt in my mind these people had rights violated.  LINK

Where they live now. The Hueferno County jail.
It's worthy to note that like the former meth freak/gay sex addict sheriff up in Denver who spent time in the very slammer named after him the former sheriff here received the same honor for crimes he committed against the very people he swore to serve. SHEEZ!
