They usually don't allow fresh meats/vegetables into the country for
obvious reasons (pest control and stuff like that, which makes sort of
sense). Jamon is like Prosciutto (sp?) but 100x better, it is still raw
meat even though it is cured pork. My theory was that it was part of the
Italian food mafia conspiracy to not let Americans know how much better
Jamon is that their woosy prosciuto (just kidding). Incidentally the bad
thing about the stuff is that it is responsible for one of my best
friends, who is Jewish, ticket to hell.
