Public laundry washbasins at work


On May 13th I posted a photo a public laundry washbasin in Ciudad Vieja and Heidi asked how do people wash their clothes in such facilities. Here I have a follow-up photo taken at the same time and day. People, usually from low income areas, take their dirty clothes to the public laundry washbasin which is nothing more than a large water tank with many sinks where women can wash them by hand using only soap and a small plastic vessel. The mystery is now resolved, but the magic has been taken away.
