TRAVELING KNIFE SHARPENER MAN

As I walked down the streets my first morning here I heard a simple melody echoing off the concrete walls and brick pavement. A block away a man with a panpipe strolled along blowing his tune. Much like the ice cream truck lures people with its jingle, the Spanish knife sharpener man uses a woodwind to let potential customers know his mobile sharpening station is on the street. When was the last time you heard that?

I bet at that moment you were regretting not bringing along the knife block you left in our care.
