the sound of ancient phoenicia
museal soundwalk in the ancient levant – listen to historic vibes
audio impression of a long-gone phoenician market; offered was livestock and goods of daily use
somewhere in phoenicia, 200 bc.
the land still densely forested.
at least the part where i got stranded.
mediterranean virgin forest;
early morning, late spring.
the air thick with the scent of … – lavender and rosemary.
lesser whitethroats fill my ears, nightingales – and roosters from the colonies.
hear the cattle?!
sounds like calf …
steps i take, on solid ground.
now i can smell it clearly!
walking down the hill, to where the livestock market is.
busy here. it’s teeming with two- and four-legged folks.
pausing for a second.
leave the scene inconspicuously.
