A longer article about precautions to take when traveling in India. The recommendations are actually very good for any third world travel destination. The one suggestion I take issue with is the author’s advice to avoid street foods. If chosen correctly, I think third world street foods are actually a healthier option than eating in most restaurants. The street food is usually fresh and cooked right in front of you. Cooking carts are less likely to be infested with rats or insects than restaurant kitchens.
Look for food that is being cooked fresh and isn’t sitting around. Look for a line of local residents buying the food. You’ll be fine.
