Laundry Shop B.

On the way back from the railway repair factory, we checked out the remains of an old iron mine. Parts of it are now a museum, but since it was getting late, we only stopped to check out if the administration buildings are worth a visit. After running into what felt like an ocean of mosquitos, we decided that it wasn't and drove back into town to get some dinner.
After dinner, we went for a little walk and spent some time looking at an old laundry shop that was only two houses over from the hostel were we stayed.
It did look abandoned, but it was dark, so we couldn't really see - and it looked like there was a light on in one of the upper rooms. But that could have been an illusion. My wife and I had looked at the place before and it did look like it was okay, so we decided to check it out the next morning before our friend Lichtbeschatter left for home again.
And so we did. Aftzer breakfast, we packed our stuff and went a couple of meters down the street.
The fence in the back had been cracked open, so getting in the garden was easy. The back door to the house was open as well, and we started our explore.
There was very little vandalism, although it appeared like some closets have been cleared out to look for valuables. The last inhabitants of this place had been racoons, judging by the tracks on the kitchen table and the typical stench.
The laundry shop itself was pretty cool; most of the larges machines were still there, so we had some nice photos to take before we left again.
