The water dispenser called tapayan

Before the coming of the refrigerator and that’s long before the arrival of the electric water dispenser, what we use here is the tapayan. It is a clay pot with a lid and a small faucet for the dispensing of water. Usually the water comes from the artesian well or if there is a mountain spring nearby when in the rural area. The water is surprisingly cool to drink even at high noon when the weather is warm. Old folks say that the clay pot is a natural water cooler.
