SUGGESTED PACKING LIST

 Please pack as lightly as possible.
 
 Clothing
Bring clothing which fits comfortably, preferably cotton outfits. Steel toe work boots are preferred, but other boots are okay for construction. No sandals are allowed on the construction site. We highly recommend flip-flops and bathrobe for bathing. It is acceptable for women to wear shorts at the construction site, but not too short. However, women should not wear shorts while visiting churches; admittance may not be allowed. Generally Armenians ‘dress-up’ more than the average American or Western European. You will be noticed and stared at if walking around in construction clothes. If you don’t mind, this is fine. But, please be aware that it may happen.
  
Electricity
 
 The electricity in Armenia is 220v and plugs have two or three round-prongs. Bring a voltage adapter for any important electric devices from home. Consider, however, that buying an item in Armenia (iron, radio, hair dryer) may be cheaper and longer lasting than buying adapters for each one. Plug attachments that change flat prongs to round prongs are cheap and easy to find.
