I headed north with an empty feeling at leaving the Tamil family whom I will be forever grateful.
Mumbai was another world: noise; crowds; beggars; none of which were visible in Rameswarm at that time. I wound my way through a maze of streets without a map and decided to leave India once I had a new passport. I booked passage on a ship crossing to Mombasa and decided to take a train north in the meantime.
