WHAT IS A CHIVA BUS
Chivas are cultural symbols of both Colombia and Ecuador and they are essentially a colorful, open-air bus. Funny enough Chiva means goat in Spanish but luckily it goes faster than one. The first Chiva was built in 1908 and was used in a route between downtown Medellin to the town of El Poblado. The first models were very basic, with a canvas-made roof and four benches. Chivas are designed to be able to take on tough mountain terrain. They are normally painted yellow, blue and red…this is because both the flags of Ecuador and Colombia are yellow, blue and red. Chivas are also sometimes called escaleras, or stairs, because there is generally a ladder on the back of the bus so people can put their belongs or even ride on the roof of the bus. A chiva was actually part of the Queen of Salsa, Celia Cruz’s funeral procession. In the long line of fans and automobiles to pay tribute to the famous Cuban artist this Chiva was the last in line paying tribute to the fallen star.
