Chicken bus

The chicken bus is the main local transportation between towns, villages and cities especially in Guatemala. 
These buses started their lives as the yellow school buses from USA or Canada, when these buses reach the age
of ten years or 150, 000 miles, they are sold at auction.

I spent some days in Antigua in the "bus station", an area where all those amaizing chikens comes and goes.
People running, shouting, cleaning the bus. Music from every windows, people sitting just waiting their time to leave.
Bus drivers waiting and chatting.
Ladys coming from the market and locals selling food around the bus station.
This is picturesque and behind all that there are bus drivers and people that make all that magic to my eyes.
