I believe the original question was "what smells in Norte Americano that take you back to Baja...if this is correct it seems to be a tough one to respond to.
I can think of nothing...Baja is to unique.
I have a little Baja soap....I think I need a fix...:biggrin:

Many years ago when I lived in Wyoming we moved to an old farm house where we had to burn our trash. It had been a long time since I had been in Mexico and it was the furthest thing from my mind.
The first time I got a face-full of trash smoke, I though I had been smothered with Eau D'Tijuana.

Instant transport.

It brings back so many memories.


I must have stayed at that same motel. It was at the base of some cliffs cause dad and I would walk along the top and I remember the smell also.

It was the smell of rotting kelp. Marine biologists call it the wrack. It's actually quite pleasant to my way of thinking.

Probably the same place. Right on the edge of thirty foot cliffs.
"Wrack?" I'll remember that. Thanks.

For a lot of my Vietnam veteran friends the smell of burning diesel fuel and sh*t takes them back in country in not a good way.
Smell is a big time PTSD trigger.

You want major stink, go to India and stand by the lower Ganges River.
Everyone in Turkey smells like tobacco too.

Happy birthday Dennis. We miss you, kid.
Reading this thread brought back others, Oso for one, that I miss too.

Some Baja smells have no equivalent. Driving past El Suazal always had a unique fragrance, some disliked it but I always took a deep breath of the briny and loved it --
