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.


Tancredo Abuses Himself In Public

It's asshole's like this guy who need to for once in their life get loaded. Lying as usual -

Citing the negative example it will set on his grandchildren, former Colorado Representative Tom Tancredo has backed out of his bet to smoke marijuana.


  1. WoW...what a header!!! Hope you were all over that taking pics!!!

    1. It was dark down in here TMoon. Pictures we're all that good. The video of the waterfall which is behind this picture was the best.

  2. "Mr. Tancredo, were you born a creep, or did you have to learn to be one?"

  3. Like most Republicans, amirite? Fire first ... aim later. He should have thought about the consequences BEFORE he shot his big mouth off. Somebody needs to ambush THAT welcher with a special brownie or two. T'would give him a whole new outlook on life.

  4. GREAT header photo,btw! Simply Lovely ....

  5. thanks bj - like I said to TMoon - it was pretty dark and this was the best one out of the bunch from there that turned out pretty good.

    I'm not in favor of doing that but in special cases slipping people like this man something that wouldn't hurt him I may be persuaded.
