A simple leisure day in Guatemala

Sunday, October 13th, 2013

A very interesting leisure day here in Guatemala.
Rode my bicycle to the province of Escuintla to checkout the crops on my farm.
Of course I forgot my personal pass (without it you have to pay) for the water park but I explained to the crew I had one and they were nice enough to let me in without asking much and I spent some time at the pool after working on my land.
It was rainy on my way back, I had to stop riding my bike and boarded a chicken bus.
It was raining so hard, at some point I could not see 4 feet infront of us, I’ve no idea how the bus driver managed to keep going.
Streets downtown Escuintla City were flooded!

Just another day here in Guatemala…..
Chicken bus? How should we call them?

Loved it!
I hopped on a bus today and it had some old Mexican movies being played on this 30″ TV. The sound system was of great quality too.

One of the advantages of paper book is that you can carry it anywhere without worrying it can be stolen. It is nice to see Guatamalan readers in places like this, a camioneta, an opportunity to expand your mind while waiting to get to your destintation.

Boarding a Public Transit Bus in Guatemala City

I want to know why Guatemala’s public transit system sucks. I really want to know. Does anybody know the issues and reasons behind such failed system?

Public Transport: Decorations

Friday, September 30th, 2011

One of the unsolved mysteries in public transport would be, the eccentricity in decorations. There are elements that, lets say, reveal us ourselves and says a lot more than you might think and see at first.

Get In Line, Boys!

There is definitely something wrong with these kids… they are trying to enter in to the bus two at a time and someone in the back is pushing everyone, a daily moment kinda funny anyway.

Back from work

It’s the end of the week and all the party places in zona 10 and zona 1 are full. In the main picture, transit in zona 9 is always difficult at the end of the afternoon and all of the transmetros are on the limit of their capacities.

Es el final de la semana y todos los lugares de fiesta en la zona 10 y zona 1 están llenos. En la imagen principal, el tránsito en la zona 9 es siempre difícil al final de la tarde y todos los transmetros están en el límite de su capacidad.

Vamos a La Antigua

Monday, May 16th, 2011

To party or a short ride to Antigua Guatemala among young people and relatively young, is known as Antiguazo a deformation slightly terrible but we will not get into that discussion 😉

The fact is that, going by bus from Calzada Roosevelt to Antigua Guatemala is more relaxing in weekdays, especially in the middle of the morning when rush hour has declined… so, lets go to Antigua!
