Most of the ground floors in the old part of Kaysersberg are meant to look inside.
The first, second and third floors have their own lives, away from curiosity.
As a couple of belgian tourists once asked me, “Do you live on the first floor?”
“Yes and second floor too”
“We can’t see how you folks live at all”
“Be happy about that, you wouldn’t want to know it at all”.
Then we had a common laugh, humor is great – there should be a lot more of it.
Most windows on the ground floors are business windows.
