Bhaktivedanta Swami had to pass through immigration and customs in Boston. His visa allowed him a three-month stay. Captain Pandia invited Bhaktivedanta Swami to take a walk into Boston, where the captain intended to do some shopping. They walked across a footbridge into a busy commercial area with old warehouses, office buildings, bars, tawdry bookshops, nightclubs and restaurants. Bhaktivedanta Swami wrote a poem that he titled Markine Bhagavata-dharma – Teaching Krishna consciousness in America, in which he said, “…but I do not know why You have brought me here…But I guess You have some business here, otherwise why would You bring me to this terrible place?
