    other parts of la paz, bolivia smell like eucalyptus leaves due to having many of those type trees planted. apparently it's one of the few trees that will grow in the type of soil and climate that they have.

    I did the Disney/Daytona thing eight years ago. That's the only time I've been out of England. It smelt very different, but nice, and warm.

    I have smelt a similar smell a couple of times in England, and it immediately takes me back and reminds me of Florida.

    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    Me and my GF just spent a week in Puerto Rico.

    Notable smells:
    - Coffee plantation, smells like coffee
    - Mud flats near Luquillo, smells like mud
    - Ocean waves in San Juan, smells like the sea
    - El Yunque rainforest, smells like forest
    - These little tree-fruits that they have in El Yunque, which smell and taste like roses

    The smell of sage brush after is rains. Is a wonderful smell unlike any other, but I am from Nevada so it reminds me of home.

    Baltimore's inner harbor smells like beer and fried fish and salt water. There is a kind of comfort in the smell - once you get used to it.

    You got lucky. That's the delicious smell of the lake, which is from dead animals, but nothing you would easily recognize as a dead animal - that's the result of the death of trillions of tiny brine shrimp at the end of their life cycle and the layers upon layers of muck on the bottom of the puddle made up of their decomposing remains. The right time of year, or after a storm that stirs up the muck, and when the wind conditions are right, the entire city will reek.

    The airport is so close that a lot less is required for the stench to make it there, and the salt flats have their own unique nasty odor that is slightly different from the dead brine shrimp.

    So wait, why do people live near a salty lake that smells like death?
