China: Drinking hot water

Hi Dragons!

Your iTeam are now currently in Kunming making final preparations for our course. We are super excited to meet you on the 17th. From there we will board a bus to our orientation site just outside of the city for the first few days of the program.

We’d just like to give you a heads up that in China, 99% of the time our fresh/clean water source will be hot/boiled water. We just wanted to make sure that your water bottle can handle the heat (so to speak). BPA-free Nalgenes work great while thinner bottles tend to melt. There’s no need to bring a thermos.

That’s it from us. We’ll see you at the arrival gate on the 17th. We hope that you can rest/sleep on the flights over.

See you soon!

Mekong iTeam.
