Dead animals left in the road? Fresh tortillas on the comal? Whatever it is, pleasant or not so much so, it is recognizable as Mexico and instantly triggers a thousand memories.

Fred Sanford (Redd Foxx) once described white peoples' houses as smelling like lettuce.

The north-most outhouse at El Requeson is used for an RV dump and is unique. :wow: :lol:

It must have been a 1970's thing. Glad we don't have to live in that era anymore.

I'm not going there. That's more for the off topic board.

This is a great topic


The smell I associate lately is the smell of the laundry detergent. I started noticing it on Mexicanos that live up here. I like the smell though it may be too sweet to smell all the time.

I started to post here when there were no comments yet and then one year old grand daughter highlighted and deleted whole post and started typing in greek symbols - truth! Don't know how she did it. Had a terrible time getting back here, I'm on her dad's old laptop.

The smell I notice, but have not smelled anywhere else, is a particular dusty, musty smell. First smelled it in San Jose del Cabo in back of Sr. Manana's where the estuary is, then in El Triumfo (sp?) as we walked along the street. Next in Mulege down by the river and finally in Todos Sanatos down Topete where there's always water and dust. There are many smells in Mexico that I have expereinced one time or another somewhere else, but this one has been unique to Baja California Sur - my new home.

Mesquite wood burning. You can smell it just after that nice aroma of raw sewage close to San Antonio Del Mar draining into the Pacific Ocean.
