People here do dry their washing in the most extraordinary places. Public railings, pavements in front of schools, bridges, even fields full of water buffalo. It makes for very colourful displays. Most people can't afford washing machines. They wash the clothes under pipes and gutters during the rainy season, or in the rivers. I'd love to see an aerial photo on washing day.
