@uricenia - good, because that's pretty much all this is : ]

what we sorely miss in this country

you have no water fountains?
claudecf December 12, 2009, 01:22 PM
That's right! And a lot of the time, in cafés, or restaurants, they act like they have water restrictions. :(
striatic December 12, 2009, 01:25 PM
i guess they're trying to get you to buy beverages other than water, subsidizing the french vineyards!

Guess what, the cheapest thing you can have in a café isn't a cup of coffee or bottled water, but a glass of red wine.

that's fascinating. so i guess no fountains because the red wine is so inexpensive.

some might appreciate this, though i don't drink alcohol so i probably wouldn't.

I don't drink alcohol much either. Plus the red wine they would sell in cafés is cheap stuff and not very good.
Anyway, I have never been much of a drinker so I'd rather have water fountains or free water in any other form

love the red and how one of those fountains is lower catering for the smaller folks. We don't have drinking fountains like this in our stores/shopping malls either. Only place you'll find them are the very old ones dotted around at the odd beach and the walks beside the river.

kids need water too.

The lowered one is also more suitable for people on wheelchairs.

i think everyone should know that i took advantage of these fountains shortly after taking this photo - but not the lower one, as i am not wheelchair bound, particularly short or 6 years old.
