It’s like being in a place which is a cross between the Bahamas, Portugal and Indonesia here. We love the way the men wear their lunghis, either short or long. Very versatile. We often see men riding bikes holding umbrellas over their heads and also women using umbrellas for the sun.
The streets have names like St Benedicts and Mother Mary etc which reflects the Christianity in this region.
We had a good walk around Jew Town yesterday and saw the synagogue and went into lots of the spice shops.
At the forshore we spoke to some of the fishermen who use the Chinese Fishing Nets to make a living. They showed us the callouses on their hands from pulling the nets up.The smell of fish was very potent as we walked along the foreshore and there were many different varieties.
The streets are very clean here and we have not seen many cows wandering around.
