Do you drink the water?

On a recent trip to San Carlos Mexico, I became sick. And have remained pretty sick for the past 2 weeks. I even lost 8 pounds. I go to Mexico several times a year, and never use water from the faucets, not even to brush my teeth with, and don’t ever use ice in my drinks, always straight from the bottle, with the exception of this trip. It was 32 oz frozen margaritas, And man were they good! How do you feel about it?

[Choose #1] It’s always better to stay away from tap water in a foreign country or risk the poopies.
