He's right, you know. There's so much rain that
everything is always clean, and then they collect
all the rain in reservoirs and send it to England, 
for drinking and making into beer. 

The Welsh water in Birmingham (a big city in 
England, 100 miles east of the middle of Wales)
is pure enough to top up a car battery (NEVER do 
that with hard water) and it can also be used for 
almost any common laboratory purpose other than 
dissolving silver nitrate.

Russ is right to promote Wales. It is a
Principality full of history, scenery and
nature. The natural history embraces habitats
ranging from almost alpine mountains to bogs,
lakes and coastal salt-marshes and dunes.
