Day 2 - "The Water Truck"




     In Mexico drinking water is delivered on a 'water truck' in 20 litre plastic container called a 'garafón'. The truck we get our water from happens to be a Coke truck (much to Diane's delight, given that she's a Coke collector). It costs 27 pesos ($2.30 Cdn) for a refilled bottle.  Pepsi :( also delivers water and each driver knows which houses are 'his' in each 'coto'.   He comes through 3 times a week and comes right to your house and rings your doorbell.  You can also buy Coke, juice, and Gatorade.  

The garafón of water is tipped onto a stand and now you have drinking water! Slick!
