Our bedroom windows face an apartment building that is only about 30 feet away. On the side facing our flat are many large windows and a couple balconies, which are frequently host to young residents, drinking or smoking, especially in the evenings. I like to look across into the windows at night when the lights are on, and wonder about the people who live there. One balcony in particular is almost directly across from our windows, only a little bit higher because the apartment building in slightly uphill from our place. Tonight I was laying on the bed, playing Angry Birds when I heard someone yell “young lady on the bed: we love you!” and then giggling. Apparently the people in the apartment across the way were having a get together and several of them had stepped out onto the balcony to smoke and Kris-watch. So I did what anyone would do when caught unawares-I waved. Good thing I was modestly dressed…
Coming up: New pictures tomorrow, then another recipe soon.
