Our apartment in Lisbon is on the top (4th) floor of our building but still sits lower than the building across the street. There is also a ledge outside our three large windows that prevents us from seeing all the way down to the street. So, while they let in a lot of nice light, the view is restricted to the upper floors of the adjoining buildings. I still like looking out though, but every time I do this nosy neighbor is always looking back at me. I know it’s just a sign but it fools me for a fraction of a second every time. It’s nice that he’s smiling but you’d think he could wave once in a while instead of just stare at me.
