Final Count:  100 tacos

I lost a day to stomach issues, an hour to the time change (this past weekend in Mexico), and 12 hours in various forms of transit, but at the end of the week, my quest was successful.  As I consumed my 10th and final taco of the morning in Guadalajara’s marketplace–picture to come once the film is developed–I was satisfied, both with my breakfast and my journey.  Not all the tacos were fantastic, not all the stands were hygienic, but when it comes down to it, I don’t regret a single bite… other than whichever one it was that gave me gastritis.

Carnes Asadas Bigo’s, Guadalajara – 7 tacos al pastor, 1 de chorizo, 1 de tripitas, and 1 final taco de barbacoa.  Decent market taco stand.  B

A big thanks to Juan, Maria, and Carlos, as I’m sure at least several of the taqueros who served me had one of these names.
