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.



In this case it would be booklets over drones.

so we can enjoy what is ours such as this better.


  1. Is this the "black canyon of the Gunnison"? I was there once, wanted to go down but was told it is a real boulder scramble of a trail and we didn't really have the time either. Could see a couple sun bathing on a sandbar at the river, tiny tiny little people.

  2. I saw these buffalo last year on my drive to Dinosaur NM. Great pic!

  3. It is just that YF. I wasn't there very long. And from the window Fg.

  4. Sad, isn't it?!!! Our National Parks are taking a hit, but then, they always get the back seat. Love National Parks! All of them... Great header, by the way

  5. You made it to Montrose! What did you think of the Canyon...long way down isn't it? Did you find a place to live?


  6. Why can't "the people" complain about this too.

  7. It's a shame.
    A lousy hundred bucks would print up several boxes of them.
    Can't have that though, they are trying to cut back, haven't you heard?
    HA HA Ha Ha Hahahahaha.

    Fucking assholes.

  8. Nice to hear from you again. Last time I tried to read your blog it didn't come up and I thought you'd shut it down. Have to put you back on my favorites.
    Let me have an e-mail and I'll send you a rough draft of my latest novel, if you don't mind giving me some input on it.
    Good friend of mine was down here, but had to go back home to Gunnison. Trying to get her moved down here, but she's stuck in the place she's in for now.

  9. The new buffalo pic header is a beaut. Could be America in 1820.

    1. I often wonder Tony what animal population numbers were like then. It must have been something to see rivaling possibly the plains of East Africa. Thanks!

  10. wow that is a nice view out there.just an amazing sight to look at.
