A typical Panama bus. This is an old recycled American school bus. The deal is that in the USA, there are incredibly strict laws that require all school busses to be replaced after a certain age, regardless of condition; the old ones get shipped off to central America and a long lifetime of service. In Panama, especially, they are given incredible paint jobs, featuring religeous displays, cartoon scenes, and more, usually intermixed on the same bus.
