Wash and fold laundry (Laundry)
We dropped our laundry off here in the morning, and Panagiotis returned it to us at the end of day. He met us after we called him, with the laundry, at the statue of Pythagoras which he delivered on his scooter.
The laundry was beautifully washed and folded. Howard [ Just Imagine ] 09-Oct-2016
