It would be hard to squeeze two adults today into those seats!!   :O

When I was traveling in Haiti earlier this year... these hand-me-down buses were used there for long distance travels -- three adults per seat -- plus tons of people standing!!  But I had a good time, chit chatting with new-found friends -- and the three hours passed by pretty quickly.  The sad thing, of course, is that my little diversion is part of their everyday hardship...

I honestly don't see why there is any controversy over this.  It's just a photo op.
