OK, so everybody’s got a different idea of what the right precautions are to avoid general gastrointestinal distress around here. I am proud to say that I have chosen to disregard many of these snippets of advice, with (as yet) no adverse effects. Specifically, they say DON’T:
Drink anything with ice cubes. Clearly, they don’t realize how hot it is here, or that the original recipe for Red Bull exists here and nowhere else. I’ve had about 4 Red Bulls with ice cubes, not to mention several iced coffees (both with chipped and cubed ice). Yummy, refreshing, and totally fine.
Eat at street carts. Best Pad Thai I’ve ever had.
Drink fresh squeezed juice. How they get juice that sweet and yummy out of those teensy weensy little oranges is totally beyond me, but mmmmmmm, it’s so delicious.
More debunking of gastronomical restrictions ahead, I promise. Right now, it’s time for a beer!
