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.

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

    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.

    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 :(
