Tips for staying healthy while traveling
Traffic and transportation tips
Always take extreme caution while crossing any street.
Watch how locals cross streets and follow their lead.
Food and eating health tips
Try to cook for yourself as often as possible.
Always wash fruits and vegetables before eating. This also means fruits whose peels you do not eat, as touching the peel and then touching the fruit can cross contaminate the edible portion.
Try to avoid eating uncooked vegetables in restaurants. In point, restaurants often do not wash their vegetables well enough to insure that you do not get sick.
