I have many memories from the time that I lived in Argentina for a year.
I grew to be thankful for many things that I had in the United States
when I was living in Argentina. One of the first things that I did when I arrived on
campus was drink a glass of water. I was told right before I drank it
that I probably would not like the taste of it. I was so thirsty so I went ahead
and took a sip but then immediately spit it out. It did not even taste like water
to me. Drinking the water was one of the things that I could just not get used to
while living there. I was so thankful whenever someone came to visit
from the states and brought bottled water.
When we moved to Smithfield the water tasted different to me and I
have had to get used to it. I am used to it now but I still just love
the taste of the fresh spring water from a jug or a bottled water. I drink
fresh water with every meal!
Thankful for the opportunity to have fresh water here where we live!
