The blouson was hanging out to dry on the power lines that were stretched over the road

In Shanghai, where the streets are still old and have not been redeveloped, many electric wires were strung across the streets, just like in Japan. What is interesting is that they are not used to transmit electricity. It is a nuisance for the power company, but the locals use the cables as clotheslines. I was afraid that I might get an electric shock, but seeing many laundries hanging out to dry, it seems that it can be done without any problem.

As I was walking along the path where the laundry was hanging out to dry, I noticed a blouson hanging out to dry at a very high place. It was hung at a distance from the other laundry and seemed to be floating in the air. It was hung so high up that I wondered if I would be able to take it in after it dried.
