Water From Perito Merino Glacier - The Best Ever

I am a big fan of New York City tap water, but it pales in comparison to the water I drank one day while in Argentina.

We took a guided trek on the
Perito Merino Glacier (within Los Glaciares National Park, near El Calafate in the southern part of Argentina) and drank run-off water that is part of the ever-changing dynamic of the glacier.

The water was cold, crystal clean and tasted indescribably crisp. Not knowing the next time I’d be back to the Patagonian Ice Field (the world’s third largest chunk of ice), I drank way more than necessary.
