    Arrow I never realized how far san fernando is from Port of Spain

    until i went to Santa Flora on friday; lawd what a drive! i've never been there or San Fernando before so it was nice to experience south for the first time. I don't know HOW IN THE HELL people making that commute every day nah. One taxi ride is like 20 min and the driver only charging $8. How they making a profit with that long distance driving? first from POS to San Fernando is a 1 hr fackin drive on the highway and that cost $15(again, how is that profitable to the driver?($6 by public transportation which has improved greatly imo) i find that reallll cheap for that distance) then from san fernando to Siparia is another 20 min drive(hardly any traffic or traffic lights so 20 min is long for a straight drive) then from Siparia to Santa flora is another 20 min ride. It was cool to see all the oil pumps along the way(for some reason i thought they only pumped off shore). Its extremely quiet too, i wouldn't mind living there but the distance from port of spain is too much. I also thought there would be a predominance of indians in San Fernando but from the looks of it, it seems its evenly mixed with Blacks and Indians. The people also seem alot more friendlier than people from the north.

    a minivan. i guess it also depends on how fast you are driving. The driver drove at an average speed and it took us an hr.

    maybe thats it. Coming back home seemed like it was taking forever, we left santa flora a lil after 6 before the sun went down and we didn't reach pos until after 8. Coming back had a lil traffic on the road tho so thats what made it extra long.
