Or drink only bottled water, beer, or soda. Don't touch the tap water. The myth of Montezuma's Revenge is NOT a myth!!

Also, if you're in any areas where there are tons of kids selling chicle, don't buy any.. if you buy one from one kid, you'll end up having to buy from all of 'em!

You know I always eat from the road-side grill things. I actually trust them over the tourist restaurants.

Robert Young Pelton agrees with me.

^It's true man. I think you build up an immunity so all these street vendors. I was in Malaysia for a couple of weeks and ate steam boats galore, no problems!

As a side note, street vendors are a good way to meet locals. The most crowded one is possibly the best one. (as long as the crowd is locals and tourists). They will also be much cheaper than restaurants also.

If you have a chance get out to the eastern side of Mexico and check out the Mayan sites and the rainforest.

Oh, and Welcome to Tpunk!
