  1. The first thing that comes to mind is the characteristic voices/sounds of people with Down Syndrome and other significant intellectual disability, since I live in a large complex for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities. I guess that isn’t politically correct to say though.


  2. Our neighbourhood is fairly quiet. Considering we are in a busy area of London, our road is a little oasis of peace. I can’t hear cars from my little nest. When I open window, it is pleasant to hear the birds nesting outside and the water fountain.

    The noisiest events are the rubbish and recycling collection at around 6am on Monday morning (because we all need to hear that kind of screeching on a Monday morning, don’t we!), foxes baying during the night, especially around February/March – their calls sounds a little like a woman screaming, so it can be quite disturbing. We have a lot of restaurants and pubs on the high street, and sometimes we hear groups of young people coming back to their car at 1am – forgetting the rest of the street is tucked up in bed. There is also something unusual, there is a large office complex on the street parallel. They are hidden by an ancient looking brick wall which has unusual openings. Twice a day, something fires up within that office block and we hear a noise which we cannot identify – a little bit like some kind of noisy air conditioning unit. It emits a low moaning noise for about half an hour and then switches off. It is a bit of mystery.
