I wear a lot of cotton. Paul’s favorite shirt is a guayabera. This means ironing. I don’t mind ironing, but if I don’t have a tv show to watch, it can be pretty boring. And hot.
So when blogger Jennifer told me about ” Arco Iris”, the planchaduria that advertises 12 pieces for 50 pesos, I didn’t hesitate for a minute. I gathered up our clean clothes that needed ironing and headed over there. And for those of you who don’t know what 50 pesos converts to….it is THREE DOLLARS AND SEVENTY-FOUR CENTS at today’s rate.
The corner ironing center has roll up doors on two sides, and believe me, they need the ventilation. There are three women in there ironing all the time, and what a professional job they do!
Last time I took in 19 pieces and paid 80 pesos ($5.97 US) – let me tell you, I am about to retire my iron. And with the economy taking such a hit down here, it’s the least I can do, right?
Just don’t start calling me Princess, you hear?
– Planchaduria Arco Iris is on the corner of Zaragoza and Rosales in Centro.
