The old adage "don't drink the water" doesn't just apply to Mr. Montezuma. You can be certain
that his revenge can easily outstretch the border of Mexico into Thailand. You'll find with the
sun combined with the humidity here, you'll be needing more water - drinkable water - than you're used to back home. And if you are planning on staying longer than a week a nd find
yourself renting a house for that period of time, than it behooves you to do something that took
me 3 years to finally take advantage of fully.The BIG ol' bottle of water. INstead of making daily trips to the store for bottled water where
you'll be spending at least 10 baht a bottle, you can get these giant bad boys for only 12 baht.
You have to pay a 100 baht deposit at first go however, but everytime thereafter these bad boys
are only 12 baht. The only draw back to these bottles is their size. If you can figure out how to get them
delivered to your house you are a miracle worker or just lucky,( I someone can get a weekly
delivery fairly easily where I live) but either way it's definitely worth the effort. You can
carry one on your motorbike if you are feeling daring, or if you want a good workout try
carrying one home on your back. If you want to save a bit of dough and avoid Motezuma's legacy, then these are the way to go.
