We got our laundry done today. There is a lavadero right across the road. It was terribly convenient. We dropped all our dirty clothes off at 12.00 and picked it up at 18.00. AR$30 (6GBP) later we have lovely laundered clothes. Not bad considering the amount of stuff we had. The lady in the shop was very friendly indeed, she spoke just enough English and we spoke just enough Spanish to get through the transaction. Seems like such a luxury to have someone else do your washing. Our apartment doesn’t have a washer (I don’t think it’s very common here actually) so we’ll need to use the lavadora... not that I’m complaining.
