Today I ate street food (papusas) and I got a horrible stomachache for nearly a week. We (well, not we) thought it would be fine because there were all sorts of people eating them. When the other tourists nearby saw us, they probably assumed it was fine, and they ate it too. Oops. The moral of the story? Don’t eat the street food. How to stay safe – make sure the food you eat is cooked, washed in clean water, and made with good ingredients. And if you get sick for more than a week, you’ll want to see a professional. Well, anyways, it was not a nice thing, because my parents said it would be fine (Great job, mom) and I really wish I hadn’t done that.
Don’t eat street food. Really.
