Calcio: not the sporty kind

  1. (a) kick
  2. Football, or soccer for us Yanks
  3. calcium

Tap water in Rome is probably some of the best tasting water in the world. It has none of that chemical taste I associate with tap water in Texas and is highly rich in calcium, which mean my nails and hair are stronger than at any previous point in my life and grow pretty fast as well. (Or rather the former do and the latter would if I'd get over my hairdresser phobia and get regular trims.)

There's just one tiny downside:

After 8 months of unfiltered use, your hot water heater will have somewhere in the vicinity of 2.5 kilos of crystallised calcium blocking up the works.
