What can you see from your bedroom window?

Living on the crossing of Meiji Dori and Yamate Dori.

An office building with a true 60’s look in Paris, in the X arrondissement close to Rue du Faubourg Saint Denis. There is a nice restaurant located on the ground floor, you can see its red canopy.
Paris, France

From the window of my apartment I can see my neighbourhood, called Venteira, which means windy place.
Amadora, Portugal

“It’s a sunny day … finally!”
The street is called Rue du bleu mouton. It’s a funny name I think because it means blue sheep! It’s a very small street in the centre of Lille.
The building that we can see is the “ENRX”, which handles the forests, natural parks, green-places in the Nord-Pas de Calais, and is also in charge of outside events… So this is our green corner of the city!

My room is located in the old clock of a girl’s boarding school, which has been turned into apartments. I love to lie in bed on summer morning weekends with the window open, listening to the sound of wind in the leaves of the bamboo. I wish it could be like that every day but there is lots of construction going on and it’s pretty noisy during week days… the countryside is in demand!
Canton de Vaud, Switzerland

I can see the beautiful and huge pine tree that’s in my neighbour’s garden!
Vicente Lopez neighbourhood, Buenos Aires

We see this tree and sometimes a cat by the window.
The tree is not on the street, but in our neighbour’s backyard.

This is a photo from my bedroom window at 7am. Mango and guava trees on a very wet day in Cuiabá. This could be the last rain of the season as the dry season is about to start, and should last until the end of September. It is really dry for 5-6 months, and the average temperature is around 40c.
We have mangos and guavas throughout the year. They’re gorgeous, but in the peak season there’s just too much of it and a lot of it goes to waste. We make cakes, jam, chutney, salads, juice… you name it! We also give our produce to the neighbours, but we don’t seem to keep up with the amount produced.
Cuiabá is the geographic centre of South America. Its location is a meeting point of three Brazilian biomes: Amazonia, Cerrado & Pantanal. The region is also an important watershed for three hydrological basins: the Amazon, Tocantins/Araguaia & Rio Paraná. The latter feeds the Pantanal Matogrossense, the largest wetland in the world. Just around the corner from where I live.
The photo was taken in my backyard, on Rua 12 de Outubro, central Cuiabá.

When the sky looks like a web.

About to turn the light off on Avenue de Tervueren, Brussels, from the living room window through the bedroom door.
