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.


Some Of The Aftermath

Locally -

An autopsy will be done today on a man who was shot and killed by Pueblo police on Christmas morning after he reportedly fired a handgun at officers who were summoned to a domestic disturbance

Then this well known winner and hero to many -

Baseball star Andruw Jones has been arrested for allegedly beating his wife on Christmas morning.

Nothing new here and of course it's all over the country. Happens every year on the BDay of the big guy's miracle baby boy. I understand it's all part of the  "plan" and for sure you have to wanna believe the "strange ways" the forces of good work no matter how many are dead or get the holy shit beat out of them on the "holiest of holy days" ya see!


  1. I see Rhianna is back with Chris Brown also.

  2. Hello Truth. Nice to know you are still kicking and I remember too that you are a believer!

    Many women go back to the beaters. It's a girl thing and there's not much headway being made I don't think.

    A post from you now and then would be nice to see. Hope things are good for you and that there is barge traffic on the river. Best wishes for the New Year!!

  3. Sick! Very sick!


    I love your header!
