Chicken Bus

from wikipedia:

A chicken bus (Spanish: "camioneta") is a colloquial English name for a colorful modified and decorated US school bus and transit bus that transports goods and people between Guatemalan communities. The word "chicken" refers to the fact that rural Guatemalans regularly transport live animals on such buses, a practice that tourists from other countries might find remarkable. The buses are also commonly used in Nicaragua and Costa Rica.
