RE: [Slovak-World] Wells
- My cousin conned us into driving him to Bardeov in the quise of showing us
the sights - to fill up a bunch of jugs from the spa. The minute I smelled
it, I recognized the PA sulfur water smell. I let Chris sip it without
telling her. Didn't go well with her Southern taste buds. I also conned
her into milking the family cow. She really had a nice trip.

Hey, we do that in Olympia, Washington. There are several artesian wells
around the city, one in a public parking lot downtown. People congregate by
car, bike, and foot to fill their containers from a gushing ice-cold flow
out of a pipe. Me too, when I am in the neighborhood.
"It's the Water" used to be the slogan of the now-defunct Olympia Beer Co.
I wonder why artesian wells occur in some places. Slovakia must sit on some
interesting aquifers, considering that they have rare cold-water geysers.

water for cooking, washing, etc., but that she bikes down to the spring with
a few plastic jugs to get the spring water for drinking.
