As a traveler, it was fascinating to meet the monkey catchers and learn about a side of urban life that I had never read about in the guidebooks. But when my new friends offered me a cup of fruit punch prepared only yards away from the smelly monkey cages I should have politely said no.
I said yes. The punch was sweet and delicious. And that night I started vomiting from food poisoning. I didnt stop for two days.
Ill never do that again.
