Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: With rainy season upon us (July and August), I have discovered that I am ill equipped for the weather. If you are coming, ladies, bring capris and clamdiggers, men, long shorts or clamdiggers. These clothes won't soak up the water around your ankles! If you have some solid shoes that are waterproof, bring those along too. Don't worry too much about umbrellas, they are readily available. If you are larger than a size 12, or are quite tall, you may want to bring a water-resistant coat, also.
Miscellaneous: If you like to drink any kind of TEA other than green tea, bring them! I failed to find a simple Black Tea. So if you are a tea drinker like me, make sure you pack them!
