And as the sun begins its path into the sea, the wind, with renewed energy, whistles through some scattered trees. Evenings are saturated with the sounds that emerge independently from open windows: couples laughing, parents and children squabbling, the tinny tones of television sets. In the street, cars with boom boxes approach, slice the sounds of people’s voices, seem to attack, and fade away.
