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.


Marijuana Legalization On The Ballot In Colorado

Announced today enough signatures were turned in on the second go around to get this on the ballot. If only! What a step this could be. I expect bama to come down very hard against it. Why would he take the right side.


  1. Watch the law enforcement lobby ramp up to defeat it.

  2. Unlimited contributions with no accountability means some will be funneled to things like this - just like you say nunya.

  3. This should have all the sky pilots and god botherers in Colorado Springs in high dudgeon. Too bad, I was looking forward to a visit to the 8 Mile High State :-)

  4. The alcohol lobby is very powerful. They do not want pot legalized for any reason. Plus, towns and cities love nothing more than arresting people for possession of pot and getting their sorry asses in the criminal justice system, where fines and court fees can be assessed. Also, pot arrests justify the insanity of law enforcement, which includes the salaries and benefits of police and sheriffs, which we, the taxpayer, pay for. Obama's DEA is every bit as wingnut as was Bush's DEA. Barry, it would seem, is quite the conservative on the issue of pot. Despite the admitted fact that he was a frequent user throughout college.

  5. Brother's in arms without question.

  6. In the US alone, enforcement of cannabis prohibition costs taxpayers around $10 billion each year. If it was taxed and controlled like alcohol, cannabis sales could generate an estimated $6.2 billion in yearly tax revenue. Cannabis has also been shown to ease symptoms of people with HIV/AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis and many other medical issues. It has been successfully used to TREAT nausea, appetite issues, glaucoma, muscle spasms, and many other types of pain. In 2010, nearly 45,000 Americans were serving time in state and federal prisons for nonviolent cannabis possession. In that same year, over 700,000 Americans were arrested for the same crime. The estimated total cost to the taxpayers is $9,000,000,000

    The arguments for weed are endless: (1) It's impossible to overdose and there is no hangover; (2) People don't get violent when they are on weed like they do on alcohol; (3) Its smoke is not carcinogenic (cancer-causing) like cigarette smoke (and even if that were an issue you can eat it in brownies or use a vaporizer) (4) It's cheaper than alcohol; (5) It's much safer to drive on than alcohol; (6) Many successful people have smoked or still do smoked weed (many Presidents of the United States, famous scientists such as Carl Sagan, and countless musicians, writers and artists; (7) It's not physically addictive (it's really only addictive in the sense that fun is addictive, fun is addictive in many things besides weed), some people get addicted to television for example); (8) It's no more of a gateway drug than alcohol (most pot smokers eventually end of quitting having over done any other drug besides alcohol).
