On Broadway

Broadway calls me.

Broadway, Cochin – that is.

 

Having crossed the water we arrive at the Ernakulam jetty,

 

Then take the short auto-rickshaw ride to Broadway.

 

I want to buy Christmas cards.  Anu needs an apron.

We enter one of the many narrow-fronted shops.

Anu completes his purchase.

Slowly we negotiate our way down congested Broadway to buy my cards.

________________

The return ferry does not leave for another thirty minutes. We have ample time to walk back to the jetty.

Shops and godowns line our Broadway route. Spices, metal-ware, Christmas decorations and almost everything one could wish to buy all jostle for my attention.
