Almost ready!

Well, we're just about packed up and ready to go to Peru. I went to the bank today to get some crisp $1 bills for tipping—apparently in South America giving less than clean money can be construed as an insult!

My pack is heavier than it was in Thailand, with the addition of a sleeping bag, rain pants and jacket, some high-tech trail t-shirts, Thermarest and hiking poles. Bummer, since we're going to have to carry it all. We're basically traveling progressively, rather than from a home base and radiating out with smaller trips. But, better to have a few spares than spend the trip damp and miserable—since we're going to be in Peru in the mountains at the tail end of rainy season, we could end up getting soaked. Spare duds will be appreciated!
