‘Inhabitants day’ was organised by the City borough counsel in collaboration with several housing corporations, to bring the inhabitants together, and have us get to know one another and appreciate one anothers cultures and backgrounds.
No matter what culture: for every woman a bag of choice, affordable and practical, classic or modern, colorful or stylish – a bag, or a bag, or a bag :)
