Normal Knotting of Curtains

The normal tie in a knot to open curtains methods.

Fold or doubled up Curtain

I folded the extra length up and used clothes pins to hold, this made the sheers cover the window so I could walk around in room in privacy.

Towel as Curtain

i carry a beach towel, often the room provides a towel, then I will use the towel to cover sun areas that overheat the room, or when I need a curtain.

Hammock as Curtain from Thailand

This is my hammock, I purchased in Thailand, normally I use as a light blanket for the tropics, however, there are times when I use as a curtain.

I moved the curtain rod forward in my Via Via Auberge room in Yoff Senegal. This allowed me to have more air in the room, yet still having privacy. I wish there was a way for all curtains to do this.
Clothes Pinned and Stuffed into Louvered Windows
I used my Hammock to cover curtains that were to sheer and transparent for proper privacy inside the room.
I often use my beach towel to cover a window.
By doubling the curtains, people cannot see into the room, you can use clothes pins or safety pins.
