A blog of Adrian's adventures! (Formerly a Peace Corps Blog) "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." – Mark Twain

Having to hand wash and dry laundry

So for the first in my life, I need to hand wash my laundry here in Paraguay. Ha. It really isn’t too difficult or time consuming though, takes me about 20 minutes to wash through several articles of clothing and it’s nice to be outside for a bit to take in the sunshine.

While the Peace Corps gives us enough of a living allowance for our necessities, it usually isn’t enough for a Volunteer to buy a washing machine or dryer, depending on the Volunteer’s priorities, because the Peace Corps wants us to live in a similar way as many of the people around us to make it easier for us to integrate and conduct our work.

Below are pictures of where I do my laundry. 🙂 Also, yes, that is a water well in the picture, but it’s not working as one anymore.
