Did we mention that our wonderful house help, (called domestique) does our laundry three times a week? And that she does it by hand outside in big tubs. We don’t have washing machines here. I think its because we want to support our local economy and help people keep their jobs. Also, its not customary for house help to do ones “under garments” and dedicates. So Jim and I do them when we take our evening shower. It is not proper to put “under garments” on the line for all the world to see either. So, we hang them all around our bedroom at night, it helps raise the humidity and cool the air a bit. (a very good thing).
