Water, Water

These water machines made an interesting subject the other day while I was out walking. ¬†They’re kind of like gas pumps, but for drinking water. ¬†Potable water doesn’t come out of many taps in Asia, so people rely on bottled water (which is very cheap and comes in large amounts) or taps and machines like these which exist for drinking, cleaning, and cooking.

You CAN use tap water to wash dishes and probably would be fine if it were boiled, but I don’t take too many chances, though I’m not convinced I would be wiped out if I forgot to do any of the above :)
