Windows to the City’s Soul – 12

My original intent was to file 10 posts on this theme before moving on to another topic, but now it is clear that this project will score a baker’s dozen or more sessions. There has been feedback requesting more street views. To that end, I shall include some wider shots in the final rounds.

Vasco Pinho and I are joined in friendship based on our love of Panjim. A self-taught historian and a keen raconteur, he has self-published Snapshots of Indo-Portuguese History, a concise history of Panjim and Portuguese Goa spread over 4 volumes. This portrait was taken over a cup of tea at Café Aram at the end of Vasco-bab’s morning constitutional.
