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.


Death Threats From Who ??

Not our side/us. I guess most of us in a sense are more passive or some damn thing. At least I tend to be that way. It's people on the right that threaten, harm and many times kill others that don't agree with their view of the world.

So you have a restaurant and decline some time ago to participate in an event for presidential candidate Romney. It's the real Repuglican world. People who take that position have to pay a price. It's the way these people operate.

"I have gotten two death threats," said Oscar Aguirre, who owns the restaurant with his parents. "Somebody just called in, said, 'Go back to Mexico.' "

A sample of what lies ahead when these crazy bastards are in control. These people kill - they surely do.


  1. I guess some people really hate Mexican food. :>

  2. That they do and a bunch of other stuff as well.

  3. Your header is calendar worthy!


  4. I agree with Terry and Linda - that's a great picture. Looks like there are some igneous intrusions there in the center. Is it anywhere near a caldera?

    On the subject at hand, I'm aware of very few such threats from left-wingers, at least in America. My guess is that we have enough problems. People tend to feel more inclined to issue such things when they're the ones who are supposed to be in charge, and we haven't been in that position here for a long time.

  5. I actually didn't think it so special and I thank you for that. It's old too. Hustling for pictures everyday it seems. I like new pictures but for sometime I see little to take pictures of. It's just different here.

    It is Cujo but it's nine miles away just north of Dotsero along I70 between Eagle and Glenwood. The trailer park is called the El Malpais park. I've not been there and should have gone. The flow reached the Colorado River to the south. Google Earth shows this and the formation in the picture is along the river again nine miles north. There was also some activity north of Burns along the river as well. That is probably another nine or ten away north from where the picture was taken. Great observation!!

    Nope we sure as hell don't have a lot to say about much these days. It's the right who issues threats constantly they really do and they want confrontation in my opinion. Our side just doesn't think that way - they do.

    I will fight back if needed but I do not threaten others with harm even those I despise. There is an exception though and that's the offer to pull the trip rope on the treasonous Bush Bastards!
