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.

  2. Wow! Knowing the EPA as I do this must be a "gross" violation and I mean that literally and figuratively as well. The EPA which is understaffed and underfunded (cut by Bush) never institutes harsh penalties unless the situation is life threatening.

  3. IIRC there are two more layers of appeal that they can go through. With enough lawyers they can stretch this out to the end of the useful life of the generating station, then sell it to someone else without ever doing anything about it. The new owner would start the process all over again.

  4. The whole Farmington area is a 'gross violation'. The drive between Farmington and Bloomfield is an ocular horror.
