A Month in Mexico - Sounds of San Miguel de Allende

  • the trickle of water fountains
  • the panpipe melody of the knife sharpener whistle
  • church bells
  • a band practicing every afternoon - from the sound of it, they need to practice 24 hours a day
  • barking dogs
  • church bells
  • boy running ahead of the garbage truck clanging a triangle to let everyone know it's trash time
  • roosters crowing
  • water truck man shouting "Agua"
  • church bells
  • vegetable trucks spouting a recorded litany of produce for sale
  • fireworks and rockets
  • church bells
  • loudspeaker voice shouting uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete, ocho as children gather for school
  • church bells
  But noise does not disturb this caballero's nonchalance.
