|One of the water coolers I pass every day|
It is a custom here, in villas owned and lived in by Emiratis, to place these water dispensers on the garden walls to quench the thirst of passersby. And you can imagine how welcome they are!
They come in all shapes and sizes and offer cold water to drink, wash with and splash all year round. With temperatures in Dubai now easily hitting 50 degrees Celsius around noon, it is so important to keep hydrated. Water is key to the human body's survival and by the time we feel thirsty, we have already lost over one percent of its total water amount (roughly 70% of an adult body is made up of water). And I can confirm that a person can live for over a month without food, but only about a week without water.

What a beautiful gesture and act of generosity to offer this source of life to all.
