More elaboration on chicken buses

Well, after I posted the chicken bus photo with my one-line description, my beautiful (among other positive adjectives) wife informed me that those who have not experienced such joy might need a little further explanation. Well, that is what a blog is for, right?

Chicken buses are basically old US school buses redesigned and definitely pimped out to make the ride more, um, exciting, to say the least. You can find more comfortable ways to travel, to be sure, but if you want to get to just about anywhere in Guatemala, or most of Central America, for that matter, you'll end up on a chicken bus. Fares are cheap, you get to know your seatmates VERY well, and you may just get a chicken or a kid in your lap (seriously!) It's really not as bad as it sounds, unless you're a real stickler for comfort.
