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.


Oh Please Please Stop

They're not going to because they don't have to. Most municipalities have been caught flatfooted with this and thanks to the regulations frackers can do pretty much as they want. Our government can't even get them to disclose what is in their fracking liquid.


  1. "This Way to the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen"

  2. Even at county level they had no clue this was coming believe it or not.

  3. Now the header should read....lost forever at Sea!


  4. Hope the protests help. In the video, Erine people look like a nice community very determined to fight the frackers.

  5. They won't Duta unfortunately. The laws and regulations were written specifically to give the driller allthe rights to do what they want.

    Some places have found out they can drill/frak inside their city limits and they can't stop them.

    That is my understanding.

  6. This is flippin amazing! Geeez...!!!

  7. Thought you might want a bit of good news. Here in the North Fork Valley, the community of organic farmers, ranchers, vintners & residents came together to fight the sale of 22 BLM parcels for 'fracking', which would have resulted in the destruction and devistation of our valley. The energy and unity against the sale was amazing. It worked...last month, the BLM announced that they have removed all parcels in question- no leases! They had been using outdated environmental studies (from 1989)and one of the major accomplishments is that there will be new impact studies & reports done. The secrecy and deception of the oil & gas industry was not lost on most people here. This was a temporary win, as our land & water are always at risk- especially since our congressman lines his pockets with oil & gas contributions. But just for today...we can put one in the win column. What's been going on in Erie and Gunnison County served as a lesson. Keep fighting!

  8. Thanks for this skippy. My money says the oil and gas whores pressured for the sale hoping to pull off a fast one.

    It's a different story if they own the leases to my understanding.
