As it was, they consisted in the most colourful hallucinations, accompanied by brightest lights possible and the deafening sounds of cheerful music. These sounds were mixed into the confusion of shouts and the general din of the crowds that populated his dreams.
At times, they seemed so incredibly real that the boy actually perceived the smells hanging in the air. The crisp, fresh smell of recently made popcorn with melted butter, the smell of the sawdust that covered the walkways and the floor, also that strong aromatic presence of exotic animals, collected from the furthest corners of the world.
