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.


News As It Is Now

Pretty much the way it appeared this morning from this "news source" in Colorado Springs. It's probably pretty much the same where you live.

Not only are we watching out planet die but society as well. I don't give a shit this is NOT the way it's supposed to be.

Capitalism will not be denied!

  1. It's a shame isn't it?!!! and I absolutely love that header.

  2. Yes it is TMoon.

    It was the 12th or 13th of Nov when I was there. The light was just perfect in these rooms. I got all kinds of good ones. Thanks.

  3. Sad. Really sad. But your header brings great joy!

  4. Remember 'Grit'? The Good News Newspaper? My first job was selling those when I was 11 or 12. I believe the magazine is still available online but it's nothing like it used to be. Grit didn't keep the ills of society from occurring it just didn't point those bad things out to us. I guess no one looks for the good side of anything anymore .... I suspect we aren't 'entertained' by most anything good anymore ......

  5. I do remember "Grit".

    I suspect we aren't 'entertained' by most anything good anymore ......

    That's a good point as it seems to me society is captivated with programs and movies where people are getting hurt badly and it's humor to them.

    1. I suppose, like the Romans with the Colosseum, proles must be distracted. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, you see, so we are fed what they want us to consume.
      As I get older I must admit, I am more entertained by less..... and when I said no one looks for the good side I was referring to most news outlets. I come here for the neat photos, your POV, and the comments. All three of which are very 'Good' .....

    2. Thank you for that bj. I used to put up a new picture almost daily along with more posts. Nor have I posted at the other place in several months. Things change. I don't see myself ever reaching the levels of posting here as in years before. This thing of not working still is new and one evolves as time goes along - at least that's the way it's been for me. I hope to get motivated and get some picture posts up. It's much harder to find pictures here.

      My "POV". Not many do. You must be all kinds of messed up.
