    If there are any festivals with fireworks involved, be prepared to run like hell.

    In some parts, it's not adviced to drink the water. On the outskirts of the cities, the water quality is pretty poor.

    I went to Spain, and we got this warning. My brother ignored it, and drank some water there. Once we got back home couple of days later, he had a stumach infection and diarrea.
    It also applied to the place in the south of France where we were staying.

    Well I've experienced two different festivals involving fireworks while in spain and both were somewhat dangerous. The first time they actually tried to get the crowd with the fireworks (they trew them at you and just generally pointed them towards the people), and the second time they lit the fireworks very close to our tent (a distance of app. 30 cm).
