I was walking down the streets of Taipei Datong District. The road I chose was a side street, as it is often not much fun to walk down the main street. Most of the buildings on either side of the alley seemed to be residences, although I could see a few signs on them. But there was no laundry to be found anywhere. It lacked a sense of life.
It seems that I don't find laundry outside of houses in Taipei, even if I walk around the residential area. Is there a law against hanging laundry outside the window to protect the landscape of the city? In contrast to Shanghai, when I visited Shanghai, everyone hung their laundry on the street with clotheslines sticking out of windows. In any case, it is not customary in Taiwan to hang laundry to dry with a long pole sticking out of the window.
As I walked down the alleyway, I saw a stout mother and her son coming from the other side. They must have a lot of laundry in their house. I was tempted to ask them how they hang their clothes out to dry.
