We have seen "real" US type ham here a time or two at Comercial at Christmas. It's really hard to come by and is very expensive.

Ham is available almost anywhere, and comes in at least the turkey and pork versions.

Reminds me of an event In Damascus, when I was living in Syria in the mid-eighties. I went to our neighborhood grocery store and was getting increasingly annoyed, when the owner kept serving people who had walked in after me. When I was about to walk out, I was the only person there and the owner says to me: "Mister Sidney, you like pig meat"? I thought he was joking, considering we were in a mostly Muslim country. But he waved me into the back, opened a refrigerator and showed me large pieces of pink pig - skin still on it - smuggled from Lebanon. I salivated like Pavlov's dog and pointed to a ham. I cooked it up for my co-pilot, our mechanic and some folks from the office. It was pretty awful, since aging meat is unheard of in that part of the world.

frostbite, having lived in a few foreign countries, I have had the same experience. The only benefit was that it was probably chemical free.

I was just as Sam's and I believe I saw what you're looking for there. But hurry! It's ¡BUEN FIN! weekend throughout Mexico, meaning lots of things are on sale and they were doing a brisk business when we left there a couple of hours ago.

You can get jamon de pierna at either of the Merza stores at the deli counter, and also at the deli counter at La Comer. Ask for it sliced "muy muy delgado" and it's like our "shaved".
