Yeah, I'll second precautions for mosquitoes- dengue fever is NOT a pleasant thing to get- and NEVER drinking out-of-the-faucet water. Nothing like dysentery, cholera, hepatitis, flukes, e coli or traveller's diarrhea to make your trip come to a grinding halt. Wash your hands lots, too. It's not JUST local things that could be contaminated....

Be careful with food, too. Don't eat meat that isn't well done- stay the hell away from street meats-, or locally prepared mayo/dressings, raw shellfish, cold hors d'oeuvres, or unpasteurized milk (extends to ice cream). And try to peel fruit yourself if you're eating it.

...and I assume you've gotten the right vaccines for travelling to the area? They can, and probably will, be a life-saver. (Yellow fever, cholera, etc.)

This has to be trolling.

Who makes an account on a cosplay website, posts ridiculously privileged and naive plans and gets mad and acts like a douche (real humanitarian there) when people simply urge realistic caution ?

I'm sure the natives will be rustic and charming in their savage beauty.

- I wanted to add that I think you have good intentions, if you're not a troll (I've seen everything, so I don't know what to think), you just need a reality check. You signed up on a cosplay forum and you're going to be a jerk to someone for having an avatar from a kids' show (and Pink Floyd album) ? srsly ?
