    Here’s a tip. Does the hotel have a gym? If they do there’s probably a water cooler there (and it’s most likely going to be much better quality water, i.e., actual spring water and not treated toilet water like Dasani. Just go to the gym with a large empty bottle, workout a little if you feel guilty, fill your bottle and enjoy.

    Cost of a half liter bottle of water in Brazil, a nation where drinking bottled water is commonplace as a means of survival – about 1 real (42 cents US).
