1. Re: Water


If you are in SC accom, you should have a stand alone tap on the kitchen sink (in addition to hot & cold)which is for drinking water. We have them in our houses here too.

If you are in a hotel you don't have this, only the hot & cold in the bathroom. You can drink this but it has a lot of minerals which UK folks are not used to.

Bottled water is cheap as chips if you need it.

Its fine to drink - you won't get upset tummies but it does taste a bit "tinny" and bottled water is cheap if you want it.

I always drink it from the tap when I go there (about once a year).
