I have been practicing yoga, on and off, almost all my life, on five continents, in classrooms and privately, sometimes quite successfully and sometimes not, but I always got something out of the experience.

While most foods are okay to eat here and present no problem to our digestive tract; the sauces that come with local foods (mostly sold by street vendors) are sometimes cooked with local water that has not been boiled or cooked long enough.
Even the ice served in your favorite drinks at large restaurants can be suspect.
