|This is my awesome Mom with my favorite nephew (so far! j/k), Ethan!|
My co.werker went on to describe in detail the boatload of money she has spent buying her 'gear' for this trip. Including hard-toed and closed-heel shoes that cost $100, specialty sport sunglasses, and her future list of specialty wicking and performance wear (not to mention filtered water bottle) that she has yet to purchase. When I mentioned that every time I have ever been to a developing country, the one thing that is undeniably present for us Americans is bottled water, I think I might have heard some disappointment in her voice. Maybe I'm too trusting, but this is a business trip, and there is no way you will see the.home.werker dropping hundred dollar bills at R.E.I. 'just in case'.
That being said, there is a very good chance you might find me at Old Navy or a thrift store looking for a long skirt and comfy capris to wear. For sure. Last time I was on a trip to Mexico we packed our clothes for a week in way that we could give them away at the end of our trip. Now there's a thought.
Oh, and don't worry, I won't forget the Pepto or Immodium. That's MY version of gear. :)
