*Sizzling ribs cooking on the neighbor´s outdoor charcoal pit, juicy meat odor wafting over the wall and permeating our patio.
*A young man with gel-spiked hair drenched in cheap cologne that overpowers the flowers and chocolates he presents to his budding love with a nervous grin.
*Freshly popped corn, coated in melted sugar, warmth seeping through the bags stacked and ready to sell from a sidewalk push cart.
*Steam whistle of a funny cart with a red drum announcing with little puffs of toasted white plums, hot, roasted, peanuts for sale.
*Home made bread baking in an outdoor, wood-burning, brick and clay oven.
*Rotten hay and musky sweat soaking my jeans as the horse rests on the steep mountain path.
