Windows without curtains

1 Replies

I was on my back home from work last night after it was dark and walking along a typical town house street I was surprised to see so many of the houses without curtains or even nets in the windows. You could see people sat watching tv or making their evening meals and going about their evening business quite openly to anyone walking past outside. The Dutch are quite happy to have people looking in through their windows and appear quite unabashed at this. Very un-British of course, but why are they happy with this?

I think its because the Dutch like to show off what they have and have nothing to hide. You may have noticed that the Dutch do like to see whats going on in othere peoples lives, so I guess its a way of being open. Where as the French hide behing their shutters, as a way of hiding anything that might be deemed as taxable!
