Windows from Around the World

There is nothing like a window with a good view.

The shuttered windows of Jaipur, India’s City Palace keep out the heat and provide privacy from which to peer.

The colorful colonial architecture of Granada, Nicaragua has no shortage of beautiful windows.

It would be easy to lose count of how many windows there are in this enormous housing block in Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Some windows are pure art like this one in Mexico’s San Miguel de Allende.

Wishing you all a healthy, happy 2010. And may your window of opportunity for travel be wide open in 2010.

"There is nothing like a window with a good view." I couldn't agree more.

Happy New Year! I wish you a 2010 full of great travel experiences!

As for the photos, the third of the big housing block in Kowloon caught my attention the most. I wonder how it would be like to live in such a building.
