Togo Drinking Water - Tips

Hello Chris, I have been reading about rain water harvesting on the internet. The water in Africa is exceptionally good and clean, not in the way you think, however in comparison to the rest of the planet very good here.I am not the least bit worried about drinking the water in Africa. I was at the water falls today, there was about 6 Belgium people, I was having fun, I cupped up some water in my hands and drank it. They all looked at me as if I was crazy, but I was with a Togo girl, and the knew I was not naive. Drinking water on the planet is great. They take river water, put it in bags here, and make it cold. The packaging means, this water is pure, food is the danger on the planet and not the water.

Water is easy to sell, a person has a chance at buying purified water, there is an outside chance it is purified. However for eating, there is no chance, you to go restaurant and eat, you drink the water of the country, because they put it in the dishes, or washed with it, or served it as cold. Eating is where people get sick, they will eat anything, they can drink the water almost anywhere, blame he water for being sick and it is the food. Change water less than 200 miles away and you can get diarreah because your body needs to adapt. Do not think I am going to buy a water purification kit, I have now drank the tap water in 76 countries, no use getting paranoid now. Note, I do buy purified water when none of he locals will drink the water either, watch the locals, the know better than you or me. On the other hand, they will alwasy say, you need to drink purified water, then they will drink the tap water. Andy in Badou, Togo West Africa May 2007 Thank you,
