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.


How I Wish A Current President Would Say The Same

Former President Carter said this in Russia.

“I personally think we do more harm than good by having our drones attack some potential terrorists who have not been tried or proven that they are guilty,” Carter said in an interview with Russia Today. 

I like this man - always have. Surely he will be hammered on for being a "bad president". 

Later next year he and his wife will be visiting Denver. I am sure most of his detractors will not be present. 

Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, will visit Denver next year to help build 11 new townhomes and repair up to 15 existing homes in the Globeville neighborhood in north Denver, Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver announced recently.


  1. I own a Carter Center hat and t-shirt. To think that in his day, Carter was considered a conservative.

  2. I've always been a big fan of his. He is a kind and decent man. That museum in your header sounds and looks interesting!

  3. No kidding. I saw him get off a plane in Denver a long time ago and get into a car. Our eyes met for just a second as it was right below where I was standing. That was nice.

  4. It's a blast like most museums. A bit pricey but I got in free. Not because I'm nice or good looking but because my friend had a pass. Other than that I think it was 13 or 15 to get in and special things cost more.

  5. We visited his hometown and the his museum. He is really just down home folk all spiffed up!

  6. He's a good man. One complaint was that he promised while campaigning to open up any UFO files that he could because he had seen one. He never did and talked very very little about that. Of course he was told to keep his mouth shut.
