When I got up this morning, the water was still off, so I had to make do without brushing my teeth, taking a shower, or taking an ahem, #2. After getting back from school, I was hoping the water would be back, but it wasn’t. On the good side, people at the Linkou water CO. answered the phone at least. They gave me the numbers for the Guishan local water office (329-4899 and 329-7999). I called them and they told me that the water problem was restricted to just my street and that they didn’t know when it would be fixed.

I guess I’ll go to McDonald’s, since I can brush my teeth, use the facilities, and maybe, if nobody’s looking, even wash my feet and switch to clean socks. After that, I think I can make it through the rest of the day. If there isn’t any water by morning, I’ll catch a bus into Tabei and shower at California Fitness.

Update: Water’s back and life is back to normal.
