Sounds of the mountain

I am in Khandala now, with a room in a mountainside hotel that overlooks a valley. My room has wall-to-wall windows, and I get a terrific view of the mountains, with an apology of a waterfall in the distance doing the best it can. The sky is blue and all that. So I tread over to the windows and slide them open, to get some nice mountain sounds.

I get traffic. The hotel's right above the Expressway, you see. So lots of traffic: the frenetic whirr of small, speeding cars; the sonorous drone of long-distance trucks; the occasional chirping of horns.

Well, what to do, at least I get the view.
