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.


What's The Dif

I can understand how this can happen in places like this.

The mob who descended upon the clinic accused Doctors Without Borders health workers of bringing Ebola to Guinea, where there had never previously been any cases.

Here in respect to Climate Change there's this -

The number of Americans who believe global warming isn't happening has risen to 23 percent, up 7 percentage points since April 2013.

Ignorance is at work here with both of these issues. There is a huge difference at play between the two. In the good 'ol US&A. The 1% controls what little discussion there is manipulating opinion and breeding ignorance with their media. Then buying our government so that there is dead lock fuels the ignorant and those many willing to be mislead into believing falsehoods including that ALL guvmint is bad let alone Global Warming is not true.

Then just a bit ago I saw this and was able to grab it and copy before the pay up screen blocked all unless I coughed up 99 cents to read the denver Whore Post something that has just been instituted. Aren't corporations wonderful. Here is a link as they may let a newbe read a couple before they want some of the less we all have these days. link

BACA COUNTY —Topsoil blew into a dark cloud that swept across the flat landscape of southeast Colorado once again Monday afternoon. Footsteps leave dust in loose pockets and grit in the teeth of those who speak. The land pays a bigger price. After nearly four years of deep drought, wind-churned dust has become a slow-moving natural disaster. Comparisons to the Dust Bowl are no longer hyperbole — they're accurate.


  1. aaaaah...is that green I see???

  2. There are leaves on some bushes and it is starting to change. I cheated here because this plant pretty much stayed green all winter. I know how balmy it must be by now at your place TMoon.
