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 State Sues To Protect The Oil Industry Instead Of It's Own Citizens

Did a double take here this morning but it's true. In Colorado up in Longmont. Municipalities trying to protect their citizens and town from devastating effects that can happen from drilling. This is crazy shit!


Enough - I'm going up to Pueblo for a 284 breakfast and a long ride on smooth surfaces for a change. That and lunch maybe at the Chinese joint that has some Vietnamese dishes as well, food shopping and maybe the zoo. Been sticking very close to home and even though these things have been done more than once it's still fun for me. Have a good one!

  1. I'm sure the members of the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission sleep in the same bed with the petroleum industry.

  4. It's called STATE'S RIGHTS! BAM!

    It's shameful the way local towns , communities and individuals are being eaten alive by state Legislatures beholden to Corporate People.

    1. I'm wondering if there was any discussion between the two parties beforehand. There are a lot of dynamics happening concerning this. Longmont is not a small city and even they wouldn't want massive legal fees if it's a given you will lose.

      There could be more going on here.
