Newsletter #3 for Rio Beach tour

Newsletter #3

This month's newsletter will answer some of the questions we have been asked the past few weeks...

Luggage, clothes and Uniforms

First; let me say that MOST all travelers over pack...  To avoid this, take a little time to figure out what you really need to bring, for our 8 day trip to a tropical location and pack it... then remove about 1/3 of what you have in your suite case... and you will STILL have too much stuff.

There is a laundry near our hotel that can wash your clothes if you need it done.... or you can had wash in the sink for lighter items and they will be dry the next day.  

General guidelines for clothing

Everyone will receive a tour tee shirt,  It is a good idea to wear the tour tee when you arrive into RIO at the airport.  This will help John find you...

1. nice outfit for travel days - to RIO, wash it and wear it again for the trip home

2-3 pair of walking shorts and or 1-2 swim suits  

4-5 pair of sox's 

5-6 pair of under ware

4-5 tee shirt or light tops

1-2 hats 

1-2 dresses/skirts 

Walking shoes / Sandals / Volleyball Shoes 

A light jacket or sweatshirt for the evening ... sometimes it cools down to the mid 70's (smile)

All of these are SUGGESTIONS.... 

The weather will be Mid to Upper 80's each day and nights mid 70's

Sunscreen / sun block is a necessity... (even for those who "do not burn")

There is pharmacy about 2-3 blocks away from our hotel... you can purchase all of your personal needs when you arrive

Electric Needs:

The physical plugs in Brazil are different than here in the USA... you will need at a minimum a wall adaptor

The Brazil plugs are a 3 prong plug with the top prong slightly higher than the other two.... Google this to see what you may need.  I find that the general 2 prong adaptors from Europe also work.

Volleyball Play:

We will also have some time to play some friendly games on the beach.... 4 on 4 is very common in Brazil

Free time:

Each day you will have free time to do with what you want.  Walk down the beach, play some Beach VB, Sightsee or.... just hang out.
