too busy to leave

out of hubbub

cheerful little cries

quivering voice

an egg for Irma

any taste at all

half attractive, half repellent

turn by the church

the Protestant parts

hallow lagoons

son of a dentist

among olives

hazy green of olives

curiosity and kindness

thick and damp

no ignoramus

courtesy itself

flounced out of the room

not quite mud

horsehair chairs

one master in the house

smoke and spit
