#2170: Eating on street: Dorce replies to Corbett
<< [Corbett adds: I used to eat like Karen describes. One of my friends
in Haiti said I was headed for trouble. NOt used to all this I replied
in my defense -- I watched the person fry the item before my eyes.
"Yes," he replied, "but when did the marchant begin using that oil."
That did put a bit of fear in me. However, I'm still rather cavalier
about these matters and while I get occasional loose bowels, I have
been lucky so far, and do regard it as luck and not wise behavior. >>
This is funny! I also eat without care (sans souci!) from vendors and cafes
in Haiti and I also get loose bowels (hey, we're all friends, right?) which I
just figure go along with the territory. No harm, no foul. I make sure I
drink bottled water and also use it to brush my teeth. Conversely and
contrarily, I eat fresh fruits and vegetables which could be problematic. I
admit I do not travel extensively in the countryside where malaria and other
scary bugs are more likely to be. If I were to, I would take the malaria and
hepititus B meds.
