The water problem

Why the hell is it so hard for us gringos to catch on to this water thing in Mexico?  You can’t drink the tap water, and I’ve even been told not to cook with the tap water either.  We have a five-gallon jug of water that we refill for $1-$2 at neighborhood markets (there are at least three places to fill the jug within walking distance of our apartment), but, for cultural reasons I suppose, my BF and I just can’t seem to keep the thing filled.

We always seem to run out of precious drinking water at the most inopportune times.   The good thing about the whole situation is that I really appreciate water and treat it like gold.  There’s definitely no wasting water in our household.
