A rainy day can get all muddy and fill you with mud up to his elbows. Merchants pulled the leftovers at the end of the market, one on top of other, slowly rotting, not suitable for sensitive olfatos, as well as meat and fish markets, where they cut the genre directly in soil. In covered markets pigeons live in the roof, leaving little ground suitable for any activity.

I remember an experience that I was quite surprised. I went to eat at a restaurant that I recommended and the food was good, What me sick is seen as picking my dish and washed it in the stream of rotten water of the sidewalk while the rats walked through it. I got sick two days, but nothing serious, a bit of fever and diarrhea of custom.
