Water by the street

As it gets hotter, in our Burma, some kind folks place water by the street. The passerby is welcome to take a drink. When I was a kid, I lived in Rajasthan. In the summer months, wealthier people would fund building a small hut shaped water kiosk. They would hire local women to dispense water via a small opening in the shed. Back then they used earthen pots to cool the water. The water had a distinct earthy taste. Now they use plastic containers; the water feels boring.
