Comments on this piece

I am a 90's child but I can still relate to what you're saying. It seems that every 2 months, there was either a new building or some sort of upgrade in Basseterre, when I was growing up. Basseterre is always under continuous development. Also, I must admit, I had to laugh when I read about the Macaroni as the closest contender to Pasta, but you have to know that nowadays is the bad boy. I call it "Life Savers" whenever I miss a lunch or the gas pains kicks in. In either case, I love your post. It's great to get an idea from someone about what this fine city was like and your experience within it.

An interesting account, which gives insight into the evolution of the business landscape, as well as the expansion of the size of businesses(supermarkets) and the variety of food now available.
