Water Fountains

We've been all over Europe and have seen that the probability of finding a public drinking fountain is similar to that of winning the lottery or encountering alien life. (Drinking water in that way would be so uncivilized, after all.)

Well, Rome is an exception. In Rome, they don't just have public drinking fountains, they have public drinking fountains - the kind where the water is spouted from a childen's mouth, or a stone jug, or a Greek goddess, or some such thing. I guess we can thank the original Romans for that.

It was, as they say, refreshing.
