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.


A Real Smoke Screen

There is the distinct possibility there may be a vote to legalize da pot this November in Colorado. There is like 10 days left to get the rest of the signatures.

A historic bust up in the metro area of Denver.  90 arrested and it took hundreds of badges to get that done.

Then there's a piece of shit article just up the road at jebus/military central that will not get a link but out of the UK where like here lies at any level is the norm given credibility where there should be none.

They say drivers high on marijuana may follow cars too close, and swerve in and out of lanes.  Ya see there! Pot very bad.

Who knows what else is coming down the tube to discredit this plant and those who very much want to use it to it's fullest capabilities.

In the end the guvmint even if some state does pass a legalization measure will ensure that all Americans who wish change in this matter and use marijuana remain criminals.

You'll see no baggers around this issue. I mean it not being Mercun giving dopers a pass.  

It's very simple but the 1% will not allow it. The deniers have most of the weapons-money,media,guns for a few. The other side has little money and the truth in it's arsenal for change. Excellent video here.


  1. Back in 2006, I spent several days camping in Manatee Springs State Park in Florida. Didn't see any manatees, however.

  2. I should have seen one when I was there but like you - no banana.

  3. Drivers who are high may follow too close, but pilots who are raptured will let their jets crash into elementary schools. How long will we allow this threat to hang over our children's heads?
