Chicken buses
Xela, Guatemala

These are just a part of what makes the gautemalan countryside so pictures.

They are nothing but american school buses, in many cases driven from the Southern US to Guatemala.
They are privately owned and are decorated according to the owner/driver's tastes, not to mention the

name of his current girlfriend.  They run between the country Mayan villages, often crammed full of people,

farm goods, and yes, chickens, dogs (chuchos), turkeys, cat, its very funny!
