Jew Town, Mattancherry. The first time I came here, on a Saturday, the over 400-year-old Paradesi Synagogue was closed. I should have done my homework and planned my itinerary better before hiring an auto that day. So I returned on Sunday; this time by foot because I didn't want to haggle again with the auto driver. Can't blame any of us, really. The 3 km walk, though hot and humid, was a wonderful visual experience. If I had more time in Cochin, I wouldn't mind walking to this historic town again.
