Dhobi Ghat, Mumbai - March 17, 2009

I can't beleive I never wrote about this incredible sight before.

Literally, this is the biggest laundrette ever.

Around 3000 people live and work at this outdoor laundry. Every day, the Dhobis wash all the washing from Mumbai's hotels and hospitals, by hand.

There are so many baths in this one sight, each with a bath and what is known as a floggin stone, where men beat the washing to clean out all the dirt.

The most incredible part of this whole scene are the whites. As they dry on the lines the white linen literally sparkles with clean. I don't think Daz has a patch on it.
