  Drying the clothes
by herzog63

Almost every back alley that I walked through had laundry hanging everywhere. It was interesting to see laundry even hanging at street level in the big city. So that showed me that the people of the area most not have a petty theft problem. Nobody wants to steal their neighbors underwear!! hahaha

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
