3 kilometer round trip for my water…

Interesting discovery happened (after coming back to Moscow) from the long term staying at the Tiny Russian Village…

I came from America and was use to the chlorine in the water. Just a fact that most water in America is chlorinated to make it safe to drink. In Moscow the same, it is chlorinated and I never could tell the difference when I came here to Russia…

Then I went to the Tiny Russian Village and discovered, as in my past life, well water is fantastic and chemical free….I got use to the Tiny Russian Village water and when I came back to Moscow, I got diarrhea, even when filtering the water and that is no fun…

This last trip to TRV is positive proof that chlorinated water causes me issues. I had the same issue in America, but it is hard to get away from chlorinated water, unless living in very rural areas. I always stayed so busy in life in America, I never sat down and thought about what it is that is causing me issues?

I go to TRV and no diarrhea, come home to Moscow and guess what? “diarrhea”! I must be sensitive to chlorine?

So we are buying water in five liter jugs and don’t tell Svetochka, but I am refilling those jugs to save money….she wants me to buy a new one each time. I just cannot. Too expensive and I am just too frugal…

Good thing I can read Russian, Huh!

and…

Works perfect…

and at home…

Even well chilled on the -5 walk home…

I measured the trip and it is 2.9 kilometers round trip. That is good to walk and good for me….I have a million coins to use this way, at the machine and by golly, I will just carry water….like in the village…
