Agua Caliente

Our hot water is heated by gas.  When we run out, we listen for one of the roving gas trucks and stand by the road to flag them down.  There are 4 different companies: Zeta, Sonic, Flo and Global.  They each announce their location by playing their theme over a loudspeaker, which gives you ample time to get to the street and stop them.  The guy then carries in a new tank and switches it out with empty one.    There is no gauge to let you know when you’re nearing empty, so the hot water can run out unexpectedly while doing the dishes or mid-shower.  A tank of gas costs 300 pesos, or about $25.
