out in the open

Life without keys, with doors opened wide, not being bothered by the hungry look of the strangers, who peek inside, hoping to get a glimpse - at least! - of the authentic culture. Pots of flowers at every step, a chair and a table in front of every door - in case a neighbour comes by, to chat.

A life where all the dirty laundry are (literally) washed in public  would be unbearable for us.

We'd call this lack of privacy. They call this living in harmony.

As seen in Crete, for Today's Flowers.
