Just Received This Info

1) I have noticed in myself that as I think about packing, I am in summer-mode. But remember, it is WINTER there now. The only days where it will be summer like are the 4 days we hike in Cuzco, and even there the nights get cold. Nights can get down to below 40 and days in Lima are in the high 50's. A good break from the heat here.

2) I have JUST RECEIVED a notice that I am really glad I received so we were not blindsided. The info is this:
You need to BRING YOUR OWN TOWELS and SHEETS. So, pack your favorite 2 bath towels, some sheets and a pillow case for your bed (they are single beds, the regular twin size). ALSO, they HIGHLY recommend you bring a sleeping bag or (if you do not have one) a warm blanket. Best would be a warm sleeping bag; all I hear is just that the weather, esp at night, is really cold. Also, if you bring a sleeping bag, we won't have to rent one on the 2 days we are camping during the hike. You can, if you like, also bring a small pillow. They will have pillows, but you may want to have your own. I realize this will mean maybe bringing one more piece of luggage, and if need be, that is okay: the limit, though, is 2 pieces of luggage (see size restrictions on a post below) and a backpack.

Seriously? Our own sheets? What size? I only have queen. I'm going to have to buy twin ones, huh?

No, if you do not have twin size sheets, I can bring some for you. Just let me know.

If we bring a sleeping bag for camping/hiking, where will we put our luggage that carries it when we get to Cusco?

Sunscreen might also be useful for our trip to Cusco.

Is there a list of what you recommend for the hike?

It is nice to know that we need all these things before we get there.
