Doing the Laundry
My home is decorated with photos from the Middle East, arranged by geographical region or theme. One of the photos my wife chose to put in the laundry area is this one.
“Dirty clothes are generally carried to the nearest running water; sometimes this is far from the village, and where there are only wells, water must be drawn; but seldom are things washed with warm water” --Philip Baldensperger, “Women in the East,” Palestine Exploration Fund Quarterly Statement (1901): 75.
