About that washing ……


Casablanca could easily be dubbed City of Laundry.  With inner city space scarce in a metropolis that houses in excess of 3.3-million people, every conceivable spot is used to hang wet washing. And I mean everywhere!!casa-street-art-1-of-14

Even without the real street art, it sometimes looks like street art.

  1. …not to mention all those dodgy looking cables! What is it about other countries’ washing that appeals to us. I wouldn’t dream of photographing washing hung out in England.

    • Yes, there are cables everywhere too but they seem to blend a bit more 🙂 My fascination with washing when I travel compared to the organised washlines in places like England is how inventive people in foreign countries have become. In the Namib for example every bush becomes a washline. In Casa every balcony, window ledge, windowsill, wall, ……… the list goes on ….. is filled with washing.
