| No doubt: It is
impossible to figure exactly what to bring. I have no doubt I
will be able to obtain some stuff while I am in Ecuador.
Never the less; it would be convenient to bring it along from
the start, avoiding to be forced to drive into town. On the
other hand; I would hate to be caring stuff around or even loos
it in a airport, which I eventually never had any use for in the
This is in
extreme contrast with the usual 2-3 kilos of luggage I normally
bring for a month in a warm country. But this time, I will be
working in the jungle, and even camping in the wild.
Further more; the usual daily washing of cloths is not possible
(takes 3 days to dry), and I'm fare from sure of the climate. In
the lowlands, it is tropical, in the heights; more alpine. On
top of that, the rainy season will start while I'm there. And my
size is normally now available in South America and Asia - it
won't be in Ecador!
The lists below contains what I
decided to bring from home. First stop in Quito should aloud me
to buy a few more things like mosquito repellent and -net,
socks, rain poncho and shoeshine. And I am considering
Wellingtons as well. The stuff marked with red
was not necessarily after all.
