Time for Laundry

It’s amazing how much washing you amass when you are in  a tropical country. And how fantastic to be able to take 3 kilograms of laundry just around the corner from your hotel in Patong, Thailand, and have it all washed, dried and folded within twenty-four hours, for the price of 50 THB per kilo!

That meant for AUD $5.00 this sea of washing was no problem.

Luckily I remembered to add his shirt and my skirt.

Then when we picked it up it was all ready to pop into the drawers of our room at Thara Patong Beach Resort.

It was lovely not to have to rely on friends with washing machines, or laundromats on this occasion. That’s one of the things I love about Thailand; labour is so cheap. Imagine how much it would cost in Australia or Europe to get that amount of washing done?  Two words: cost prohibitive!
