The Paris Review is running a blog series called “Windows on the World” and asking writers peppered across the globe what they see outside their window. Which reminded me that part of my favorite thing about traveling is the view outside the window changes. Even beyond seeing, different ones let in various smells, sounds and the occasional unwanted bug.
From a hostel room one winters eve, I watched a candlelight procession stroll by the tallest Christmas tree in the world. A different morning a grizzly bear keenly pried apart my dogs’ house in search of the bits of food Calise had stashed for later. But perhaps the most surprising was when a five-foot iguana slipped through a ventilation window and joined me in the shower!
So in the spirit of all you readers being scattered across the globe, please share…
What’s outside your window?
