Today is Blog Action Day 2010 organised by Change.org.
I have to admit that before moving to Turkey I very much took water for granted. It was always on tap...you know...it was just there...I didn't give it much thought.
I've now had almost 13 years of regular water cuts. This week in particular the water has been off every day for between 4 and 8 hours. It's no great hardship really. I have just adapted to a situation that the Turks have grown up with. I'm used to it but it has made me very aware of how precious water is, and how the lack of water in other countries can mean the difference between health and sickness....and life and death.
I no longer take water for granted.
Some of my fellow bloggers have posted about water today to raise awareness......and here are some of them which I hope you will find as interesting as I did.
