Other things I'll be taking include:
-Medical kit with everything from aspirin to lip balm to allergy medications
-Assorted pants, capris, and shorts, as well as both short and long sleeved shirts and one warm hoodie. I'm not taking a lot of clothes and hope to donate most of what I take when I leave. There's also near by laundry to wash clothes.
-One dress for church or other more dressy events
-My laptop, good camera, and Kindle
-A day pack
-A travel guide and my information book
-Bug spray and a whole lot of sunscreen!
The list is not long, and I really hope to only have to take the smaller suitcase. I'm sure I'll pick up a few things while I'm there, but seeing as I don't plan on shopping all that much and I'll be leaving most of my clothes behind, I think I'll be able to get away with traveling light.
