In Cairo we bought some water. Got back to the hotel and noticed two odd things.
1- that brand usually had shrink wrap over the caps.
2- more significantly, the bottles were beat up and scratched but the caps were shiny and new looking.

I decided we should just leave them for the hotel staff. Pretty sure someone had refilled them and used counterfeit caps.

We avoided salads etc. there. On the way out on lufthansa I ate the toboulli and that went right on through. I almost ended up left behind on the plane.

Don't visit a developing country, my brother loves these crappy developing countries, he got herpes after being in Thailand this winter and now he's going to Tunisia. He says it's for the sun but I suspect it's for the cheap pussy. Anyway, I can't guarantee I won't laugh at him if he gets herpes again.

common sense will help in any country,
u want believe it but i had food poisoning in haifa, israel
and i thought kosher kills the germs (an)

water is important, in places like northafrica ure fine with evian water ( they sell it in every country :)

and dont think if the locals can eat it u can too,
thats wrong, we have a different system
i was astonished at the fishmarket in oman, all the fish lying for hours in the sun
the fishmarket in seattle is the opposite, all hygienic and iced, great place (plaice :) )

i cant remember the city in japan i went to,
northwest, they had this huge king crabs on the market too
but i went to get some sushi,
and old man was preparing it in front of me, and i saw the cockroaches running around,
i was polite and ate it all :)

but about cockroaches i could tell u other storys, one was in puerto rico
still love this place

i have been to places like rio de janeiro, india, thailand-pattaya...
but i had never herpes ( or whatever u call it)
protect your stomach and your dick-always
I used to roll the daizz

Listen as the crowd would sing:

Long live the Army Of Kings !

There is no cure for herpes so technically you cant get it "again". He can spread the virus though, even if he's not experiencing symptoms.

The UK doesn’t offer the visitor the same wide open spaces as the US, but we have some interesting spots for the visitor nonetheless. One to consider is Swindon. Famous as the world’s first railway town, built to house the Great Western Railway’s engine sheds in the 1840s, Swindon architects have not been shy to maintain their heritage. They continue to chuck up ugly functional blocks notable for their shoddy design and basic materials in which people dully eke out more or less unhappy working lives.
Desmond Morris grew up here and took the opportunity to leave and not return at the age of 19. Diana Dors (ask Andy if you are not sure who she is), left even earlier at age 15. Some famous people have elected to remain in Swindon, notably Fred Ferris the town crier.

Those with an interest in transport history may visit the railway museum, though even the townspeople say you would be better to head off to the competing museum in nearby Didcot.
The world’s first railway café was here (sadly pulled down so that British Rail could erect an ugly 1970s office block). It was this establishment that set the benchmark for travel catering. Isembard Kingdom Brunel himself visited and wrote the following letter to the restaurant’s owner:
" Dear Sir,
I assure you Mr Player [the manager] was wrong in supposing that I thought you purchased inferior coffee. I thought I said to him that I was surprised you should buy such bad roasted corn. I did not believe that you had such a thing as coffee in the place; I am certain that I never tasted any. I have long ceased to make complaints at Swindon. I avoid taking anything there when I can help it.
Yours faithfully,
I K Brunel."
