What I bought and packed for a week in Peru

Sharing what I bought and packed for our Peru trip. There was a lot to take into consideration when it comes to packing for this trip. The key is to pack for a variety of weather conditions. The weather ranges from the intense sun during the day, the cold mountain nights, and the heat and humidity of the Amazon Basin. Dressing in layers in the way to deal with the extremes that Peruvian weather is known for. Below are what I packed in my suitcase:
