At last a rainy day!!! How happy all farmers must be!!!
Remember the motto of this blog:
"Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend."
Anyway, the issue I would like to deal with here is: Tap water or bottled water? That is the question. You may even feel embarrassed to ask for tap water ('eau de robinet' in French) when you are at a restaurant. I prefer the bottle that comes out of fountains, for instance, in the Alpujarras even if I know that it has not been chlorine-treated.
Here's the story of bottled water >>>>
Some articles to read about the issue:
Don’t bottle it – be brave and ask for tap water (The Guardian)

Watch this BBC Learning English video >> Word on the street 01, which was filmed in Snowdonia (North Wales). Do you remember we were there when we went to Conwy and Caernafon on our IV Study trip to the British-Irish Isles (Chester)?
