I decided to take my curious friend on a walk through the terror trail on a Saturday night, a few days before the 26/11 anniversary. It was also the time when people, after six days of back-breaking labour, partied with vengeance.
Our first stop was Leopold Cafe. The eatery, a hot favourite with foreigners, was choc-a-bloc. The waiters barely had time to breathe, flitting from one table to the other, taking down orders, rushing to the kitchen and coming back with plates of food. Those standing outside were getting restless waiting their turn.
