There may not be anything inherently interesting about an abandoned school bus (beyond, perhaps, captivating photography), but this gutted old hulk certainly stands out amid an otherwise empty, barren landscape. How long the forgotten shell, stripped of its internal fittings, has lain there is unknown, though its chassis has long gone. Despite its stark surroundings, the bus is actually located near San Pedro de Atacama, a popular tourist town in Chile’s El Loa Province.
