Just One More Thing
It is such a joy to be able to buy sparkling mineral water without all the locavore guilt usually associated with it. A small country that has its own water and sells litres of it for less than a dollar--heaven! I do buy the occasional Pellegrino at home, but feel guilty with every sip for the huge carbon footprint I'm leaving. I mean, shipping water, in glass bottles, all the way from Italy? Ahh! And so I justify buying Faygo club soda as a substitute because it's bottled in Detroit and that sort of counts as local, right? Wrong. But now, lovely semester in London now, I am free to quaff all the lovely bubbly water I like without a moment's pause. Oh, but wait: I need to figure out where to take the recycling.
