Glad that idea clicked. Im in India.....washing machines werent the norm growing up. It still isnt for a lot of people in the cities. And neither is running water for some. So,they end up washing in buckets in their bathrooms/backyards and line drying. Very green.

People in rural areas,esp'lly those living near rivers, wash their clothes at the riverbank...with kids splashing nearby. What luck! Its looks so idyllic when we pass them by while travelling.
All those crunchy things and more Amma to DS1(9.2007) and DS2(1.2011)
