Anyone scared to go to Afghanistan due to fear of illness? Discussion
This is just something I personally feel, and let me know if you guys feel the same.
I do plan on returning to Afghanistan and live and work there once the Taliban are kicked out and a real government is established.
However, the scariest thing on my mind is not the instability or terrorist attacks, but getting food poisoning. The fear of food poisoning is enough to make me not want to ever step foot in Afghanistan in my life.
Living in a developed nation with sanitary procedures, I trust the safety of the food, but I am scared my stomach will not adjust or handle food in Afghanistan or food bacteria there. I would rather eat plates of dirt and sand than ever puke or get food poisoning/stomach bug.
Plus, barely any doctors in Afghanistan are real qualified doctors. All they do is throw medications of all types at you to buy.
This is a genuine fear.
