As we lived in a house separate from my parents that summer, not only did we have to cook once in awhile for ourselves, when we were not invited out for dinner, but, more importantly, we had to clean our clothes regularly – almost daily. Clearly some help was necessary. We were lucky to have a regular washing lady come almost daily to wash our clothes by hand, since there was no washing machine available. A back yard was also necessary, as we had to dry our clothes there. The backyard had some papaya trees with papayas on them. I thought you would like to see our yard and our regular washing lady. Panpan was happy to help her sometimes!
