These buses are known are chicken buses on most travel guides. They make a great postcard and if you ride them, they will give you enough material for an exotic travel chronicle. They, however, do not make a good or safe transportation system. The saddest thing is that about 80% (maybe more) of Guatemala’s public transportation system is based on this old and uncomfortable school bus. The bus has a seat for two small children (they are school buses after all), yet they push to fit three adults or more on the same space.
I want to publicly thank Fred for being the first person to donate toward the hosting and domain expenses of Antigua Daily Photo, using the little blue button above the About me section on the sidebar.
Sidenote: Today is the monthly anniversary of AGDP and like the previous three months, I want to thank the 2,146 visitors who made 4,857 visits to this site in July. Antigua Guatemala Daily Photo has received 10,320 visits so far on its first 92 days of existence. Because of your continued visits, I have decided to move this blog onto a more stable and solid foundation. In the next few days I will make the switch from Blogger to WordPress. I am going to try to make the move as simple and trouble-free for you as possible. Have I mentioned how much I enjoy your comments? Shame on me.
Also, I want to invite you to visit the other Daily Photo Cities who are having a theme today. You can begin your journey at Kuala Lumpur Daily Photo.
