Adolfo is now an independent man.

We bought a used car today and it has Jalisco license plates. So, Adolfo can now drive places by himself.

We found ourselves in a rather complicated transportation situation after arriving here. The car is mine. It is also from the US. And, under Mexican law, the only people who can drive my car without me being in the car are my immediate family members. If the car is found to be on the road without me, or an immediate family member of mine in the car, it can be confiscated by Customs.

So, the only time Adolfo can drive the car, is while I’m in the car. That means that if he needs to drive across town for a meeting, I have to go too.

Now, I no longer have to go to all the meetings! He can take his own car.
