I was in line at the Louvre today and watched a guy with a black plastic bucket (marked "€1") fill his bucket in one of the fountains outside the Louvre. I didn't think much until I saw him walk over to a bench (a friend had lined up several empty plastic water bottles), they dumped the fountain water into the bottles, capped them, split them up, and set out TO SELL THEM!!!
My stomach turned all day thinking that someone can seriously get ill from drinking that water! Those bottles probably came from the trash and are swimming with anything from that fountain! Please tell me that other people know about this, as I read up on other scams in Paris, but never knew of this one?
