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.

Aspen Throws The Chamber Out On Their Right Wing Ass

Good on Aspen albeit for their own agenda in a way but that's what this town is all about and they're right. My hope is that other ski resorts follow their lead for obvious reasons.

    1. Back in da boat the chamber is a major player in cahoots with the council and realtors. Each whore in their own special way. What Aspen did will never happen there.

  2. Is your cactus blooming now?? Great shot. I was up on the windy hill to see if ours were blooming but not yet. Way too cold. Freeze warnings last night and tonight. We are on our way out back to collect all the burned stubs and fallen trees ... we will put them in a pile and finish burning them. They are a hindrance now, not a help.

    1. Is and has been. It was 72 yesterday with a 30mph wind and it was chilly and nasty for most of the day. 35 last night. Probably will be about the same today as the wind is picking up.

  3. Amazing header!
    The green thorny cactuses and the charming red flowers are a true delight to the eye.

    1. Thanks Duta. Sometimes these cactus have many more blooms than this.

  4. My town is infested with right wing sheep. These idiots will most likely volunteer to pay more US Chamber dues to make up for your chamber leaving.

    Then demand a tax break for it.
