I have found cold water souces for water in Turkey and Iraq.

They have been everywhere more or less. They look like little coolers.

The water is free and comes from the tap. I am 98 percent sure on this.

One of the biggest signs you can have of the level of development is the water.

I am in Arbil now, but found one of these in Mosul also.

I saw a few in South America. In Brazil. At the airport in Argentina.. (only at airport)

This is not common.

Any country that has bottled water everywhere is usually a great sign of infrastructure problems.

They sell water here, but not really. Not like most countries.

In an heavily tourist area they will sell water for sure. The tourist are paranoid.

The electrical here in Iraq appears to have been bad before the war and now what they

really want is us to improve it. I am looking very closely at the wiring.

Stealing electricity is a world problem. I call it a problem because there is no way to adequately

guage the amount of power used, and you will have overloads and brownouts.

This is Iraq in a nutshell.

But by the shear number of generators, this problem is not new.

It has been here for years.

I have taken photos of the wire hook ups for years for you readers that have read

my newsletters for years. My recommendation is still to take the oil money and

buy electricity and give it free to this country. Free money can make them a welfare nation.
