Tips on driving in Guadalajara

Not long ago, I took a rare trip motoring from lakeside into Guadalajara, the city once known as the Pearl of the West. 

Driving in Guadalajara is motoring’s Decathlon.

1) Leave word of your destination and approximate arrival time with the person holding your power of attorney and final wishes.

2) Have definite directions in mind.  Do not count on asking for directions from Tapatios. They will confidently send you somewhere, even though they never heard of Rogelio’s Somalian Leatherwear.
