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.


This Is Good Too

As Colorado muddles it's way through the pot issues and it's only an issue to those who lost and of course fear everything but not the State Senate who for the fourth time in a row did the right thing!

A marijuana blood limit for drivers was rejected Monday for a fourth time in the Colorado Senate, where bipartisan skepticism on the pot analogy to blood-alcohol limits helped sink the measure even in a weaker form.

It was the 5 nano gram limit they were after. When you got the cops wanting this and to them it was a good number you know it's bad. So many people would have gotten screwed, threatened and fucked with. 

Now these badges cannot jerk you around. They can but they will lose because marijuana is legal in Colorado and they have no way of proving THC in your system is impairing your driving  well - - - because it's not. 

It's the boozers and medicine chest junkies that are the real killers on the road not people who smoke herb. That's a fact whether you care to believe or not. I could give a shit. Talk to an honest cop and they will tell you the same.


  1. It is just that isn't it. I think these flowers are bigger than last year but I guess not. About the only color around that I can find.

  2. That header is amazing!
