I realized this week that the lemon-lime drink I´ve had each afternoon at Alalay is made with tap water. I´ve been consuming plenty of unboiled, unbottled water without a single problem.
My innards have proven their strength over the last month. I can handle anything.
So I´ve decided that nothing is gonna hold me back. There are delicious smelling foods on every street corner and in every market and there is no reason I shouldn´t be consuming them.
Chicharrón - fried pork
Mocachinchi - a dark brown drink with a shriveled peach at the bottom
Maracuya - sweet fruit.
I´m ready for it all.
So it´s official. Here is my first conscious glass of tap water. Everything else, here I come.
(Don´t worry mom. Of course I´ll still be somewhat cautious.)
