Sensory Perceptions

Do you associate certain colors, sounds, and smells with places you have visited in your travels? It would be fun to hear your sensory descriptions. I'll start with a few that I've visited lately...Lisbon is a dusty green (although most of Portugal is azure), its sound is a flute, and its smell is the rich ooze of wet spaghnum moss. Copenhagen is purple and sounds like a carousel and smells of cotton candy. Bernese Oberland is beige and hunter and sounds like machinery in the distance and smells like old books. Reykjavik is the greyish white of the new "snow" Imac and sounds of swishy boots in the rain and smells like fresh linen on a line in the sun.
(Nope, I'm not on any drugs.)
Any semi-synaesthetes care to chime in?

Ive heard Seattle described as smelling of wet tin and minnow breath.
Fort Lauderdale has the most delicious smell of any place Ive been in. Dont know but I think its the young palms shedding their bark. Philly, where I live smells of a rotted antique chest full of kerosene lamps and sounds like scurrying mice in an railway yard.
