Yo Mama is a Guatemalan Chicken Bus!
I confess that I have seen a chicken bus or two. Guatemala represents the best looking ones in the world, they are a visual feast for the eyes. Their garish colors brighten up any dusty town and their embellishments are a source of pride for their drivers. They also may look oddly familiar as they are the retired sisters of North American school buses and if you are lucky, you will see a new arrival in beautiful iridescent yellow and if you are very lucky, you may see the faded out name of the school district from which it came.
Chicken buses are the main source of travel for most Guatemaltecos and for a couple bucks, or sometimes cents, you can traverse the entire country. Found memories will spring up that remind you of a cross between your first day of school and a demolition derby en espanol.
My favorite thing about the chicken buses are their names, don’t even think that these babies have plain Jane names like Maria or Carla, these beauties are high class dames, and go by such jewels as, Esmerelda, Orella, and Ophelia. Ay Mami!!
