As soon as we reached Fazanovo, I of course greeted my grandmother and spoke with her a while and then heade out stright to explore my beautiful little village. I checked things out and discovered that I had arrived too late and all of my buddies from the past had already left since the summer was almost over. So I would have the whole place to myself, no crazy parties this trip. I walked up and down the little streets, and breathed in the clean air. As I walked along various smells arose wild memories. Smells of the animal manour would come and go depending on where you are standing, since still every night the animals are brought back from the fields near the village and taken to the barns, and at around 5 am and 7 pm there is no one on the streets because there is everything from goats, to sheep and cattle on each of the tiny little streets of Fazanovo.

Needless to say...that they left plenty of little gifts along the road. Then there was the more pleasant smells of flowers, and herbs, and vegetables coming from the forest and gardens. And lastly, when the wind picks up, you can actually get a tiny little wiff of the Black Sea for just a slight glimpse of its salty waters.

It was during this trip that I discovered my favorite sound, the sound that when I hear it my heart skips a beat and then relaxes into pure feeling of freedome and peace. See....I think I might have mentioned that there are no real paved roads in Fazanovo, only tow or three, the main road leading into the village, and one road from one end to the other, and the existing paved roads are littered with pebbles, branches, and holes. So, as I walk along the road, the sound of the rocks under my feet and the pebbles echo in my ears, and since its so silent there, nothing but the natural sounds of nature and farm animals, you hear even the slightest movement of the tiniest pebble.

Its an incredible expansion of you sences. Its a wonderful feeling and sound. You feel like you can hear and smell everything around you. Nowadays, whenever I walk on a road that has rocks on it, when I hear it it reminds me of Fazanovo, though I have never been able to hear the sounds so clearly as in Fazanovo.

Anyway, needless to say, I had my fill for the day and headed home, totally happy and relaxed.
