Okay, okay. It's not technically summer - like we have anything to go by down here. We've been known to check the calendar to confirm what year it is. But "Summer in the City" is the song title that best conjures up the Saturday morning hustle and bustle of Grenada's capital city. The lyrics are in my head as I put this blog entry together. You're lucky you can't hear me humming.
About 35,000 people, roughly one third of the island population, live in and around St.George’s. In 2004, Hurricane Ivan damaged or destroyed 90% of the buildings on the island. The rebuilding and regrowth is amazing, although Grenadians are quick to point out that there is still much to be done.
This is looking west across the harbour toward Fort George up on the hill.
Between the grey and red groups of office buildings at waterside, there’s a road that veers left and then right through a tunnel cut through the lower hillside.
The Sendall Tunnel was considered an engineering marvel
when it was built in 1894.
on the west side of downtown St. George’s.
along the Esplanade to the city terminal.
so you can transfer to any bus right here.
