interesting video with urban and traditional everyday life scenes of seville
Terrific, love the bit with the laundry on the roof terrace. Wish mine would dry as quick. Hope you don't mind but I will share this with my FB friends in Olvera.
Thanks- fun to watch.
Enjoyed the video.
The Andalusians love to dry their clothes in the sun and prefer it to using a drying machine.
Thanks. Very nice!
Hi Benny, the house I rent in Olvera has a lovely little roof terrace with drying lines, I even put an extension onto the iron and take the board out and do my ironing in the sunshine. All the household jobs are dealt with so much easier in the sun, I have even been known to swipe my rejas.
Guess I live in the wrong place.

Clothes and linens dried in the sun seem to smell better than when you dry it in a machine.
I live in a high-rise in Malaga and the roof terrace has clotheslines. So every sunny day the women go up there to dry their clothes. You can take the girl out of the country but you cannot take the country out of the girl. Most of my neighbors grew up in small towns, where they did not have clothes dryers.
If we get to move when we retire it will probably be Chiclana which is my husband's choice. I would be quite happy there too so long as I have a car to get up and down to Olvera to lunch with my friends and go off exploring, which I am inclined to do when we are on holiday anyway.
On lunch out days the laundry can get left in a basket and the rejas can remain undusted.
