These buses start out life in the US as school buses. At the end of their lifespan – and there’s plenty of life left on these buses – they are brought to Guatemala on a perilous journey.

Check out the trailer to “La Camioneta: The Journey of One American School Bus“.

This calendar is available in a US-friendly format which marks Sunday as the first day of the week.

To apply the calendar to your desktop, follow the instructions below:

1- Click on the following links to get your preferred version; each of these links will open a new window (or tab) displaying the wallpaper calendar in the screen size selected.

2- Right-click (or Ctrl-click for most Mac users) on the image. Choose the option that says, “Set as Desktop Background”, “Use as Desktop Picture,” or something to that effect. Keep in mind that the exact wording will depend on the browser you use.

3- If the image does not fit your desktop background like it should, you may have to go to your preference options. On a Mac? Go to System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop. Using Windows? Go to Control Panel > Display > Desktop) and choose “Fit to screen” as the display mode of your background image.
