In the film "miel para oshun" about Cuba, they use a different word for 'bus'. It's similar to guagua, but longer. ANyone have an idea?

I don't remember from the film but... Mar 5, 2008

Could it be "camello"? I think that is the name for those extra long buses that bend in the middle.


What a wonderful film, by the way.

It is indeed the name used by Cubans to refer to a bus.

No, I know that 'guagua' refers to bus, but in the movie, they use a longer word. I just wondered if anyone else had seen the movie and was able to tell me the name used. It's not camello adn it's not guagua IN THE MOVIE.
