The train station is undulating with activity. Scents of raspberry, red peppercorn and cinnamon swirl in the air as you collect your ticket from the counter. Bumping into a railway employee, you slyly obtain the iron key needed for the storage area and later board the train with the cigar box covertly under your arm. Smirking to yourself, you inhale petrichor through an open railcar window dotted with raindrops and watch the spring wildflowers and sprawling oregano start to blur as the train pulls away from the station.
