#2- Your best revenge against Montezuma’s revenge:

Having explosive diarrhea in a foreign country is uncomfortable, embarrassing and a pain in the ass for both you and the janitor. Some gringos think it just happens, a fact of life. However, there are definite ways to avoid it, but most gringos, tourists and especially backpackers don't take precautions and nearly always bring it on themselves.  

#3- Lemons, limes and limas:

Many Latinos are addicted to lemons and have them a few times a day. They are ubiquitous in most Latin homes. That’s a good and healthy thing right? Well, in some ways yes but not according to most Latin dentists. BTW, some Latinos even squeeze lemons over their junk food.
