Full Service Gasolinera!

The one and only gas station in Atenas! A part of the farmers’ cooperative
in front of their Mercado where I buy most of my groceries, Coopeatenas.

I have only used it two times during the couple of weeks I had a rent car. It is straight out of one of those 1950’s Texaco TV ads where the attendant runs up to your car as soon as you pull in, asking what kind of gas you want and if you want your fluids checked. Then while the tank is filling, he washes your windshield. The way gas stations were meant to operate. Only the well-off have cars here. Most people walk and ride taxis and buses.
