Dutch Window Seat

DSC06291Things have been a bit quiet around here, haven’t they. It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, I’ve just been a bit busy. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll get a chance to explain more. For now, as it’s Wednesday and I usually just post a photo anyway, enjoy this shot of a sight you’ll see quite often in many cities, not just Utrecht.

You may be familiar with traditional window seats — the kind where you sit inside, next to a window. Here, you’re just as likely to see legs dangling out from windows high and low. If the weather if nice, the windows will be open and you won’t have to look far to see someone taking advantage of it all. In this case, it was a nice day and there was a rowing competition taking place. This guy had an excellent view of the action taking place on the Oudegracht.

Here are a couple of other photos I’ve taken over the years of people sitting in windows.

ETA: Oh, yeah, it turns out today also marks six years since the day we moved to the Netherlands. We had nicer weather that day. Gefeliciteerd, G! Bedankt voor de avonturen!

  1. I used to live in Haarlem where we had a brilliant place for window sitting and watching the yearly jazz festival. Window sitting can be a lot of fun… as long as you don’t fall out.

    Happy anniversary on your six years as an expat in Holland.

  2. Six years! Congrats! Love your window hangs…..gosh…in Italy everyone has fab balconies, but no one is EVER out on them, let alone the windows! Ha, ha, ha, ha…..these pics are fun! Enjoy the evening!
