Walked the streets in Datong District. It was not interesting to walk wide streets, I moved on an alleyway. Although I saw some signboards, most of the buildings which flanked the alleyway were dwellings. Nevertheless, I didn't see any laundries hung outside of the dwellings here.

Come to think of it, I didn't find laundries in the city of Taipei even though I had walked around the residential area. I wondered whether there was a kind of rule not to hung the laundries outside of the houses to preserve the scenery. When I visited Shanghai, I often saw laundries poles stuck out from the dwellings. They hung laundries above the street. Yet Taiwanese people seemed not to have the custom.

Walking the alleyway, a stout mother and her little son came from over there. I thought there could be many laundries in their homes. I wanted to know how they hung the laundries.
