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.


Local Repugs Gonna Protest The First Lady

Tomorrow when she visits. I thought maybe I'd go up and see if these people turn nasty and how much so.

That's up the road and then down the road about the same distance and about the same time is a ceremony remembering the innocents  killed at Ludlow 98 years ago.

Don't know which one to do - what do you think?


  1. Oooh that ought to be interesting! Can't wait for your observations...

  2. I'm all for people expressing their opinions, especially in public, but I'm sure getting weary of tasteless, humorless idiots, both professional and amateur.

  3. I wouldn't walk across the street to watch a bunch of repugs.

  4. I'm with JEG43...wouldn't bother. Republicans are entitled to their opinions, and their protests, and I am entitled to my complete and total distain for a party that has gone off the rails and become the party of crazy, stupid and selfish.

  5. I would go for a hike, take photos or sit on the porch with stretch!

    But that is me.


  6. I think you can choose which one is right for you to go to. Please report back :) Thanks hon.

  7. I have some smart readers. I won't be going to Pueblo but Ludlow. I want to hear the message from those speaking about these times we are in right now.

    Because of these people who were murdered here at the hands of the rich and all the others who died along the way as well fighting for workers rights is the reason many workers today have what they do today. But they can't get it because Fux Whore News tells them "Unions is bad!" I will show in support of those who got me what had in the work place and out of respect for those murdered those many years ago.

    Go for a bike ride and Trinidad and stop on the way home at a long time friends house who got me started in the golf business. Jack's got himself a new big John Deere I need to take a look at. Then I will come home.

    Thanks everyone and it is a very warm 95.

  8. Wrong-it's actually like 102

  9. Ludlow sounded like the better choice. At least, it probably would be easier on your blood pressure...

  10. It's more right and important to attend Ludlow ceremony.

  11. You guys are correct. I wasn't a good student and don't read too guud either. I went down there today and guess what - there wasn't much going on cuz this event is this Sunday. I will go then and tommorrow there will be a past post put up with pictures of where these people died. Sunday it is.

    I bought a couple small items I needed in Trinidad - had lunch at a Chinese joint that was less than mediocre at best. Went for a bike ride many places around this town of Trinidad. Old with some very cool architecture.
