    If you can't peel it, cook it, or wash it (in bottled water) don't eat it. Rule I've lived by for the last 28 years.

    Don't eat raw vegetables, including salads anywhere but a hotel/restaurant you know washes with bottled water.

    Brush and rinse with bottled water. Get cold drinks, no ice - again unless you know they prepare with bottled water.

    Also ice-cream is a no-no unless you're feeling brave. I went 15 days feeling great, got a bit cocky and thought I could handle anything so had some icecream . . . errr, woops. Hello 24 hours of flushing mud. almost 12 years ago

    Don't eat meat! The meat hangs in the dirty streets and is all dried and has fly’s all over them. Best thing to do it wash everything!

    If you go to a supermarket over there (which are rare) depending on where you go - stock up on chips, biscuits etc for snacks. You will find that when dinner comes you won’t be as hungry!
