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.

Changes And Eight Feet Of Red

Yes there are changes and I have had every intention of posting on that and I will very soon. Fly is alive along with a positive attitude. The "news" and people's priorities leave me in a huge funk and if I were posting the message would be the same and then I'd get this shit "oh you're so negative". Sooo take a look at what's below.

I'll be bok!  

There is nothing to fear here.  There's two obvious reasons these snakes are called Red Racers. The first one is obvious. Others I've seen are lightning fast. This one was not that. Pretty impressive animal.



It's these guys one needs to be aware of. This is the second rattlesnake I've come upon this year. The other was was six feet off my left shoulder when walking out back.

  1. I first saw a red racer in the driveway of a little adobe house where I lived, in the foothills outside of Santa Fe. They are beautiful! I've never seen a rattler and that one seems waaaaay too close for comfort... Good to see a post.

    1. I was on my bike. There was no danger. Now if these guys had the speed of a red racer with an attitude that would be different.

    1. I could easily get hammered. It the nature of the beast. I look down and walk pretty slow. I can't hear them either. Always looking for the snakes.

    2. Like the picture of the turbines under construction, read Colorado just increased it's RPS (Renewable Portfolio Standard) goals. This is what ALEC and Kochs were trying to cripple, instead the percent of sustainable energy goal is increased. Sweet.

  6. The worst that's likely to happen to me is to be savaged by a haggis. Take care out there.

  7. I always worry about the poisonous snakes biting my dog. He is always curious about critters and this makes him vulnerable. I am not familiar with Red Racers. I take it they are not poisonous? I have a compact with the snakes in my yard -- you leave me alone and I'll leave you alone. Worked out so far. Good post ~~ barbara
