Claypot of water

The claypot used to be a standard in the kitchen here. That was the time when water was being fetched from the nearby well that there was no need for a purifier since water from the underground was certified clean and even nutritious like the mineral water in bottles now. And in this tropical place, the claypot gives the water a cool taste just like it came from the fridge.

The progress led to the water pipes that bring water to the homes via the faucet. It is definitely more convenient now that when we need water it is just almost everywhere. With the turn of the faucet handle, we get water for washing, for shower, for anything that needs water. Do we now say goodby to the claypot? Sadly, the answer is maybe yes.
