Flaneur

"Paradoxically cities bring enormous amounts of people together on a small surface, but also keep them apart. Flaneurs set themselves the goal of creating a renewed sense of community spirit, or like Baudelaire said: "Being away from home while feeling at home everywhere". To reach this mindset flaneurs approach the world with an open view."

Baudelaire is weer heerlijk om te lezen. Dit gedicht kende ik nog niet, waarvoor mijn dank!

Nice! Ik had beter op moeten letten bij Frans;-) Maar door de stad flaneren lukt me nog wel:D
