El Raitero

Mine was Boldo. Mi Raitero, payed him $20 a week to get a ride to el campo at 5:00 in the morning. We had to start early in order to beat the afternoon heat in the summer. Learned to cover up, long sleeve shirt and layers, bandanna under cap just to not get sunburned. He drove an matte orange Toyota mini-van circa 1980s, there must have been 5 of us and him, that’s $100 bucks extra a week just for driving.
