Looking for the shortest path to the Jewish quarter, I ended up arriving at a small beach at the entrance of the port, from which the hustle and bustle of ships entering and leaving it is perfectly visible. I also stumbled by chance with one of those contrasts that make India so shocking to the senses. On an esplanade, a group of colorful European-inspired buildings, all closed at that time, constituted a “Food Court” (area with food establishments) opened at the end of 2004. Together with them they quietly grazed a group of goats to which some dogs looked clueless. A group of cows bathed in a puddle, which looked more like water buffalo in an African river.
