Use this list as an informal guide in making your own packing decisions. There is no perfect list! You obviously cannot bring everything we mention, so consider those items that make the most sense to you. As you decide what to bring, keep the airline’s weight restriction on baggage in mind. Remember, you can get almost everything you need in [[Peru]], most at an equal or lower price than in the U.S.

The standard for work attire in [[Peru]] is neat and professional but not fancy, which applies during pre-service training as well as Volunteer service. Think in terms of comfort, versatility, and, most important, durability (i.e., able to withstand repeated and vigorous washing). Since there are considerable variations in the weather, items that coordinate well and that can be layered on or off as needed are useful. Given the cold evening temperatures in the sierra, long underwear and flannel pajamas may be an excellent investment. Thick-soled shoes are best purchased in the United States because of price and quality, and larger men’s and women’s shoe sizes are difficult to find in Peru.

==Description of Service ==
  
Women find that skirts, loose-fitting shirts, and simple dresses, both with sleeves and without, are comfortable for coastal heat. Slacks (especially khakis) are good in colder climates, as are cotton turtlenecks and sweaters. For men, a mix of short-sleeved polo shirts and short- and long-sleeved button-down shirts is recommended.
+
==Lessons Learned==
  
Among the things you do not need to bring—either because they are provided by Peace Corps or widely available locally— are disposable razors, sheets, shampoo and conditioner, pots and pans, dishes and utensils, a kerosene burner, a mosquito net, and standard first-aid items. Good-quality knitwear and sweaters are widely available in Peru. Radios and cassette players are also available at reasonable prices, although the compact versions found in the U.S. may not be available.  Favorite electronic players, such as a Discman or iPod, should be brought.
