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.

Done Deal

And mission accomplished. This is a real nice Suby with some amenities. It should be too cuz it cost a lot.  I'm done but the money will continue to flow for the other stuff needed. To be clear it was not me who bought this.

Took most of nine hours and uneventful. There are still aspens and other trees with color but all past peak. It was a good ride.

  1. congrats on the new car! I went to RMNP last week...agree about the color. Hand is better, but still time consuming to type.

    1. Glad you made it out here and your hand is better as well. It takes a long time. It's nice enough out but there are literally few colors and have taken few pictures. Some yesterday but nothing really.

  3. I was moving my wife's aunt into an assisted living community yesterday and my father in-law pulled up in his 1987 Volvo 240 to help out. And it's not one of those "Oh, it only has 30,000 miles on it" either.

  4. The colors are flying by here also. We finally got the roof on the house...the whole house is now re-roofed. Corn harvest starts Monday with a quick trip to Buena Vista then back to harvest then another quick trip to Denver. Then back to corn harvest. We are going to be stressed for sure...I hope the weather holds.

  6. Congratulations on the new car! I've actually read your other blog post about looking for this Forester. And I can say that you've really exerted some extra effort just to buy this car, am I right? Well, I suppose the unique driving comfort it has compared to other SUV's is just exceptional.

  7. You are right Ernest. Suby's are great cars and have performed for me better than any other for the most part. Thanks for the visit!
