    Ex-Convento del Santo Desierto de Nuestra Señora del Carmen. Ironically, that's a real mouthful for a place that's one of the most silent places around.

Tenancingo de Degollado Warnings and Dangers

    by hey_daddy_o Written Jun 23, 2011

    Need I say more? Be well-insured and stay alert. You're asking for trouble if you drink and drive. You'll need more eyes than you were born with. The good news? You'll get used to it. More good news? Behaviors that constitute acts of war in the USA are just normal in this town. There were no nasty beatings or confrontations. But heed these warnings, amigo! 1) Other drivers will pass you and anybody else in dangerous areas, defying common sense. I wonder what the organ donation rate is here. 2) Signaling your left turn is an irrational invitation for impatient drivers behind you to pass. You'll get t-boned on the driver's side. 3) All pedestrians believe they were born with invisible forcefields to protect them. 4) Do not drive at night! Cows, horses, dogs, craters, topes (see next note). 5) Beware the "topes." These are speed bumps on steroids. Guaranteed to rip off exhaust and/or an oil pan. The floor show for locals sipping micheladas at roadside cafes nearby will be you. Gawk around on foot or by taxicab.

    Go to the main marketplace by taxicab and stock up on dinner. Get some obispo and barbacoa (both are meaty treats, and obispo is a local specialty). Be sure to buy some light and tasty fresh fruit. Some good bread. Local cheeses. A few bottles of Victoria beer. You'll be ready to move when you get the bill for this fine feast.
