Speak 中文 in México

Let's join up with the Hungry Hikers on their monthly dinner trek to Tijuana. This time they're heading to the well-known Palacio Royal, a Chinese 餐館 in business since 1996. There is a fairly large Chinese population in Baja California (see http://www.sandiegored.com/noticias/22518/15-000-Chinese-migrants-thriving-in-Tijuana/ ).

Meet me, Tokyo Jim, in the rear of the last trolley car on the 15:38 Green Line departure south from Old Town Transit Center, or for the Blue Line south departure from 12th & Imperial Transit Center at 16:15, or meet at 16:30 at the Bayfront/E St. station (free parking available). We will board the 16:35 southbound train. A Day Pass is $5, plus $2 to buy a Compass Card if you don't have one. You can also buy two separate $2.50 one-way fares. 老人 can pay $1.25 each way.

If you want to meet at San Ysidro, please send me a message. You can also meet us at the restaurant at about 18:00.

You should be comfortable with a one-hour walk in each direction, at a fairly decent pace.

Regarding food quality, I would keep your expectations very low, and don't expect good value either. Rather, consider it part of the whole adventure. Bring your passport, and I-20 or other documentation if applicable.

Any problems on the day of event? Call me on [masked] JIMU.

    Jim, is it safe? Especially we are going there Tijuana at night?

      I've been going almost every month since 1997 and never had a problem. If you aren't in a drug gang or work as a cop, I think you're pretty safe.

      It is perfectly safe, I have been living here for 8 years and no issues so far. I Hope to see all of you this Saturday. :)

    Wish I could go, but alas, already have other plans...

    This sounds so exciting. I've never been to Mexico. Would love to go for the adventure if I didn't have my art show on the same day. Such a bad timing :(
