On our last trip to Kerala, India, my hubby took me to a popular street in his home town, Kozhikode named Sweet Meat Street also called as S.M. Street which is the literal translation of the Malayalam name Mittai Theruvu. The street derives its name from the time it was lined with sweetmeat and halvah stalls. Now, you’ll find the streets lined with stores that sell sweets to spices, clothes to electronics, or handlooms, textiles, and jewelry. It is reputedly the busiest street in the town. Since we visited during the festival season of Onam/Eid the street was exceptionally packed. There was also some major renovation work going on and that added to the noise and din.
Are there any popular streets in your home town where you take your visitors for a stroll?
