Andrew Evans has made his way through Mexico and is now in Guatemala, riding this bus as we speak. Here’s a summary of some of his best tweets since entering the country. Stay tuned for more, and follow along on Twitter @Bus2Antarctica.
¡Bienvenido a Guatemala! Pasaport stamped & walking up the street of fluttering blue & white flags.
Guatemala: where good schoolbuses go after they die.
The chicken in a bag on the floor of the bus doesn’t seem to appreciate the driver’s hard breaking.
Mayan woman washing clothes in a mountain stream; lays all the colors out on the rocks to dry. Like a crazy rainbow quilt.
Arrived in Huehuetenango. Around 50 madeover schoolbusses compete for passengers.
Paid 25 Quetzales to get to “Xela”: Quetzaltenango.
My ticket from the Mexican border to a town 300 km away = $4.23. DC taxi drivers please take note.
We at Nat Geo are just as addicted to the tweets as the rest of you — thanks so much for following along! Bookmark all of the Bus2Antarctica blog posts here, and follow him on Twitter @Bus2Antarctica. For more information about the Bus2Antarctica trip, go here.
