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.


Making Sure They Get Part Of Da Pot

Did a day trip and blasted up to Denver to see Doc for an adjustment and blood test results. It's all pretty damn decent considering. I am fortunate but that's not what this about. In that area there are a number of recreational and or medicinal stores to buy legal marijuana and associated products.

I wanted one of two things. Either oil or the wax and these are used in a vapor device of some sort which I have one of. The oil was not in a form that worked with my pipe but they had the wax which I bought a gram of. I want this to try for several reasons one of which is overall odor and discreteness.

Here's the bill. The initial $35 turned into $46.53 real quick. If you don't bring the special white zippered bag back you will buy another for three bucks. This is to protect the children.you see.
Remember how clicking on the pictures makes them BIG.

This is what it looks like.

The bottle is real small.

Several years ago I held a medical marijuana card and even then the number of people around these establishment surprised me and the little I've seen of the now legal recreational stores is even more surprising  at least to me.

"We're gonna lay around the shanty Mama and put a good buzz on"

Let's be straight here. I very much enjoy getting a buzz on in the morning and there ain't one damn thing wrong with that no matter what others may say. We'll check this new stuff out tomorrow morning. And fyi for anyone that's interested it looks like a generic oz is around 400 give or take without taxes.


  1. What a hoot! I can drive around and see billboards indicating "Gentleman's Club" with half naked ladies on it, but gotta have a special bag??? hahaha

  2. There are many ways to still be a criminal in Colorado when it comes to da pot TMoon. They made sure of that. The hoops these businesses have to jump through is amazing.

  3. Love your header!


  4. Hm-m-m. With all those taxes, if you could get the Coors and the Kochs to take up toking you could solve a lot of problems,
