Photography Post - Laundry on the Balconies

Also, on the balconies in Cuba, there is always laundry hanging. This is because there is no where else to hang it to dry. When the houses were built, there were people who took care of the laundry outside of the home. At one point in Cuban history, there was a large Chinese population that did the laundry. Now, all the laundry is done at home. Since there was no place designed in the home to dry laundry and the country is so poor no one can afford electric clothes dryers, they use their balconies. It only adds to the color of the city.
