Tour of Enugu

Fidelis, the ESSPIN driver very kindly took us on a quick sightseeing tour of Enugu. It was not possible to get to the market as the traffic was so bad-in fact we got stuck at one point and had to turn back-Friday at 4pm everyone is in a rush!
Yellow taxis abound here. Okada drivers are mad and Fidelis sadi there is a special Okada ward kept for them in the big teaching hospital here.

I was quite surprised to see a proper red coach style bus here. There transport systems and roads are a step ahead of Kwara.

This is the 'tunnel'-in fact everyone regards this as a joke as it is only a few meters long and is really a bridge but officially regarded as on a par with international tunnels!
 One of the longest streets in Enugu.
Very old buildings made of brick with strong zinc roofs. They were formally used as telegram post office buildings. They are now homes and shops.


All the other buildings here are made of cement blocks with aluminium roofs.
