So, I was on one of those chicken bus impostors, or actually a pullman (fuente nortes) that pretends it is not a chicken bus.  I had made the dire mistake of drinking Gatorade before getting on the bus, thus, when the bus stopped, I had to pee like crazzy. 

Iīm sitting in my seat thinking "god when am I going to be able to pee during this 10 hour trip to Guatemala City", when all the men and little boys from the bus leave, line up against some woods and pee.  Oh my god, there has to be a place for women to pee here so I get out of the bus.  I find this rusted sheet metal shack type thing with a hole representing a toilet.  The door wonīt close all the way but when you have to go that bad things like that just donīt matter.  What does matter is when you here a revved up engine and see your bus through the 4 inch opening pulling away with all your belongings and you're squatting over a hole in the ground with your toilet paper in one hand and your bag in the other and you run out of the metal shack while pulling up your pants as the bus pulls to a stop. 

And there I am running and these men come out and as they see me running with my pants half up, or down depending on your view, with my bag all swinging like crazy and my inability in this moment to button my pants they, of course, start laughing.  And, honestly, it was and still is really funny.  And, like I said, I couldnīt get my pants buttoned so when I got onto the bus where everyone was wondering what the hell the gringa was doing they all took one look at me, all crazed, toilet paper still in hand, and started laughing.  Get this though, about 10 minutes later the bus stops again at this very clean sterile place for the women to go to the bathroom.
