San Diego’s water was really gross in the area that I lived in. We ended up buying jugs of water at the supermarket all the time which was a big pain in the butt. It didn’t help that I was constantly dehydrated, but the fact that we were buying water made me want to drink less even though I always needed to drink more. LA’s water is of course not as good as New York’s but it’s good enough that I bought a brita filter which is great to have again. I’ve gotten used to the taste, but usually I’m gulping down water so quickly I barely have time to notice.
