IMPORTANT INFORMATION......We will be at a very high elevation on this trip. Some people have a mild headache and ned ASPIRIN, which thins the blood, stops the headache and allows you to sleep more easily. You are also very near the Equator, and even though it will be cool, you need sunscreen to protect you neck and other exposed area. It happens quick if you are unprepared. You may need a lightweight jacket, and more, if you are cold natured. Water will be available for us. Whatever you do, DO NOT BRUSH YOUR TEETH WITH THE SINK WATER. If you forget, immediately use mouthwash. You likely will mess up your stomach or digestive system. Some people like to carry a travel antibiotic to cover stomach problems or whatever, on the trip. Most doctors will give you this prescription, if you ask for it. It's rarely needed, but a good precaution.
