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.
