I LOVE doing laundry here!

Weird, but true. First of all, Joe and I have our own washer (literally; we had to buy one), so no more coin laundry. Secondly, everyone here washes in cold, so now I always do too. They are big on saving energy here, I think because electricity is about 2 to 3 times the cost of in Canada. Third, most people don’t have a drier! I kind of always hated drying, it just seemed so frivolous. Well, now I don’t have to worry about it!

Our backyard has two big drying racks that are for the building. We also have our own rack that lives on the balcony.

It’s really normal here to see laundry drying on porches and in backyards. It feels a bit back to the land, which totally suits me. I’m a quick convert!
