Laundry in Lisbon…On October 19, 2023 by Pam
Everywhere you looked people were hanging out their laundry as we walked through the streets of Lisbon, Porto, the Algarve and Vigo, Spain. Small washing machines were often in kitchens or bathrooms in the apartments we stayed in but, due to the always beautiful weather, the clothes and towels, etc. were hung outside to dry.
I don’t know why but, it gave a familiar feel to walking around the neighbourhoods – like we were all part of one big family. I think I was drawn to the hanging clothes because it is a favourite part of my own laundry day. I love to be able to hang clothes and especially sheets out on the line. I love the freshness and crispness of clothes that have been hung outside – crawling into a bed with freshly laundered sheets, smelling like a crisp autumn day.
So, laundry everywhere and no dryers anywhere.
