Yesterday was a pretty good day as far as the lemonade was concerned. I chugged down my litre of water without any problem, and realised that it’s not so bad, when you get used to it.
Then lemonade all day, with a mint tea at lunch time to break the monotony. I’ve decided that the real problem here is that you start to drink less water and more lemonade. You start to forget the water part – since it’s really quite boring.
And I also discovered that your tastebuds do get more sensitive. I tried to cheat and have tap water (boiled, of course), instead of popping down to the supermarket to buy some bottled water. And for the first time that I can ever remember (in Panama), I could taste the clorine in the water. Just about freaked. I don’t ever remember that taste of clorine, and I drink tap water all the time here.
So, the lemonade definitely starts to clean things up, including your sense of taste and smell.
I had read on someone else’s diary about the diet that the sense of smell starts getting more sensitive as each day goes by. And I started to notice it yesterday. Wow. But all good.
