If you are looking for water, never forget checking churchyards (graveyards).
Certainly in Belgium and France there is a water tap for watering the flowers.

And graveyards are also very quiet places to spend the nights - no one to disturb you. ... You could sleep forever ..

.... and the French are far more selective about water than about wine :rolleyes:
They even have taps with warm water; look at this one in Chaudes-Aigues
(Auvergne)

There are often taps outside the Mairie.

I presume they are normally used to fill bowsers for watering the towns potted plants.

We have tried to use them unsuccessfully, but almost all taps this March were not working and water turned off completely in public toilets etc. Presumably because of the hard winter.

Allmost true, but I guess the one in Chaide-Aigues is still running warm.
And of course: you'll allways find a tap in France or Belgium; only in Belgium it could be a beer-tap :D
