My new casa does however come with a few quirky things, which I knew it would.
I needed to do some laundry and that's when I noticed that my laundry water drains into my back yard. I can see the reasoning behind it, the pilla is in the front yard, the property slops down in the back, so the water just naturally runs down. I have plans on a garden back there and while I am all for recycling water I don't think my garden will appreciate soapy wash water, and the occasional bit of bleach. Here is the low down on the pilla, 99.9 % of Mexican homes have one of these and when I go home I miss it, I would love to have one at home.
