Washing day

IMG_3603

Monday has traditionally been laundry day so it seems appropriate to post this photo today. Many of our neighbours drape their washing over the railings at the front of their houses and even on trees and shrubs in their gardens. I am not sure why they do this because most properties around here have lines at the sides of the houses where you can hang your laundry out of sight. Returning from my walk this morning, I was treated to the sight of a long line of underwear strung along the front fence of a nearby house. There are many laundries, called dobis, around the town where you can get your laundry washed, dried and ironed for a reasonable fee. We saw these dobis in Taiping and the sheets, curtains, shirts and trousers billowing in the sunshine were eye-catching.
