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.


Partners In Crime

Married too. Xmas decoration thief's with no remorse.

In an attempt to not appear to be uncaring or judgmental during this season of joy will just say this is the way it is in wingnut haven Colorado Springs and YIKES!


  1. You can use that pic again on Halloween.

  2. Glad you brought that up being that there's been an ongoing attempt here to be kinder and gentler. Scary it is!

  3. I have a cousin who could easily be that woman. She is very kind and would do anything for anyone except herself. Because she thinks she needs "a man" to make her seem acceptable, she has lived with and supported a succession of losers. Not hard core criminal types, by any means, but guys who are firmly committed to going nowhere. She raised 3 kids all on her own, sometimes with a meager contribution from welfare. She works hard at a minimum wage job. To my cousin and this lady I say, "Sister, don't do this to yourself. You are a good person who has value on your own. You don't need a fancy house, a "man", or anything else to make you worthwhile. There are many skinny little women in the upscale housing development near my neighborhood who are in the same predicament, you'd just not guess it when you see them.

    1. I understood this before the post and it was the guy that bothered me and he was the one that no feelings about the matter. Coulda done better.

  4. That woman can do a lot better than that guy. I can imagine he does not care about her either, except for her meager amount of money. I am sure he is taking advantage of her, too, with no remorse.

  5. I agree and you girls are correct.

  6. I agree with everyone! I also know a man who puts up with a stunningly beautiful woman who does everything in her power to make him feel very ugly and unproductive. Of course she has the best of everything
    he adores her...at his expense
