This is a Transmetro, a very large version of a Shuco
Almost fourteen inches of off the grill mixed meats (sausage, chorizo, longaniza, and grilled beef) on a slightly toasted bread, with a healthy spread of Chimichurri, steamed cabbage, ketchup, mayonnaise and mustard. ¡Bueno Probecho!
Oh, all of it for just Q26 or $3.30.
One more thing: the name Transmetro comes from the large articulated buses we use as a metro system.

Pictures Forbidden at Transmetro (oh! and weapons too)

It depends on the hour you decide to use the Transmetro to feel in a scene from Schindler’s List but, let’s save that for another time.

The “no weapons” sign in Guatemala City shouldn’t surprise anyone. In fact, I would argue that for capitalinos this kind of stuff passes unnoticed already. We’re so used to it. But, It’s not the only prohibition: You can’t take pictures in the surroundings of the transmetro bus stops, which by the way, I take as a challenge.

I completely understand the firearms prohibition, but the cameras, come on!

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.

Noche y Día

Another night in the City, in terms of public transportation I would recommend as the best way to move from one area to another during the day time: el Transmetro, which already circulates through many main streets of Guatemala City and you will find police officers at every Transmetro bus stop or station always willing to help with schedules, addresses, etc.

For night time, taxis are the best option to move around Guatemala City; I would recommend using yellow cabs but if you’re in a hurry and you need to get somewhere quickly at a reasonable price you can always use the white taxis.

We have been very musical in the Guatemala Daily Photo community this past week in case you haven’t noticed, enjoy and have a great week!
