IN AND OUT OF SAN FERNANDO ... The Second City in T&T

Any amount of information about the history, social activities, community services, demographics and more, can be found on the web, about San Fernando, the second city of Trinidad and Tobago.

which crosses the Cipero River

Here in the 'quick pics series' we bring it to you on the move; no air-brushing and no staging!  
In the midst of another mission, our ever-ready camera captured some everyday scenes in the city.  There is much that has remained the same and much that has changed.  San Fernando is hilly territory, so most of its streets are either steep or gradual slopes.  One thing's for sure - there's always a great view when to get to the top! 

Let's take a quick spin around this 'hill-scape' from the Interpass to the Lady Hailes Avenue new state-of-the-art teaching wing of the San F'do General Hospital and the National Academy of the Performing Arts. Cipero Street businesses, La Chapelle Street residences, the Cross Crossing hub, 'Sando Hill', bottleneck traffic jams, all contribute towards a buzzing city.  Remember to check out the full posts on San Fernando Hill and if you have already done so ... twice is nice!
