Favorite thing:

Do not drink tap water unless it has been boiled, filtered, or chemically disinfected.

Do not drink unbottled beverages or drinks with ice.

Do not eat fruits or vegetables unless they have been peeled or cooked.

Avoid cooked foods that are no longer piping hot. Cooked foods that have been left at room temperature are particularly hazardous.

Avoid food and beverages obtained from street vendors.

Do not eat raw or undercooked meat or fish.
