During the C-19 lockdown there have been a lot of posts with visual and audible reminders of Europe (drone videos, links to musical and artistic events...). What about smells?
I was out with the dogs early this morning in the cool humid air, and the faint smell of yesterdays burnt grass reminded me of a similar smell in the rural parts of northern Romania in the Fall. I think the burning in Romania was actually from peat, so it had more of an earthy smokey smell. For some reason, I remember the oily smell of home heating oil in the stony courtyard of our rental in Vernazza years ago. Or the persistent sewage smell in the bathroom of our top floor room at a B&B in Betws-y-Coed, and - surprisingly - on the streets of some major European cities. Or the sharp acrid smell of coal fires, also in Romania. I don't know if this was from home or industrial use or power generation but the smoke in the air was blue. So, not all have been good.
What are your memories?
