Packing

I keep a travel bag packed, since I’m away so much.  Toiletries never get unpacked, and anything else I need — Euros, British pounds, travel pillow, electrical adapter — all stay in the same drawer for easy access.

So returning home from NYC on Thursday, I loaded up the laundry baskets, and started transferring pills and toiletries and the like to the larger suitcase for international travel, because . . .

I leave Monday for Tangier, Morocco!

Going to a Mediterranean climate for a few days means a change of clothes.  No raincoats or jackets for winter in NYC or Chicago.  In fact, no heavier twill trousers.  Here’s why:

Tangier will have highs in the 60s, and lows in the low 50s overnight, the entire time I’m there.  And enough humidity that the climate will feel like April in Saint Louis.

So I’ve pulled some short-sleeve summer shirts, a few linen shirts, and the tan twills.  Shoe decisions will come next.

(Lest I be foolish, I will pack a light rain-proof jacket, just in case!)
