Water.  We all agree that it's important to drink enough water every day so that our bodies can stay healthy. I'm sure that must be doubly true here in the tropics where there is a lot of, shall we say, perspiration going on (because it sounds better than saying we're sweating like pigs). One of our favorite things that we discovered here in the Dominican Republic is bags of water (funda de aqua).  

We love them for many reasons.  Obviously the world would benefit from just a little less plastic.  Compared to a plastic bottle of water, this must leave a much smaller carbon footprint. When you're on the go you can put the empty bag in your pocket and toss it when you find a trash can.  Plus, they are portable and as an added benefit, you can freeze them and use them in your cooler.  As ice and then later, drinking water.  I like to take a frozen one along on a hot day and drink it as the ice melts.  

We are surprised that we've only seen them here in the DR.  I hope that we find more as we sail Storyville down through the Caribbean Islands.  Just in case, I think we will stock up while we can.

I believe that water is the only drink for a wise man.  ~Henry David Thoreau
