Glimpse Through the Windows. Dutch Edition!

For me a stained glass window is a transparent partition between my heart and the heart of the world.

Mark Chagall

It’s been awhile since we got a closer look to who’s living in the beautiful cities that we cross during our road trip. Recently, we often find ourselves exploring the Dutch-speaking part of the world: cities of Flanders region in Belgium and cities of the Netherlands. While wandering around the cherished Dutch houses we collected a gallery of windows which we think could draw us quite a painting of the people living here.
