Jorge, that evoked memories of our hotel in Merida, Yucatan, where there was bottled water delivered to our room as part of the sevice. Our room was on the second floor, overlooking the alley. I awoke about 5:30am to the sound of clinking glass, looked out the window and saw hotel employees filling the water bottles from a hose. I figured I was ok anyway because I was drinking Leon Negra (beer of the conquistadores) - not water.

I am not advocating beer as a substitute for water in photographic applications!
