What to pack?
Read the dialog below.
A - Hello?
B - Hi Ellen. This is Curt.
A - Hi Curt! Are you packed yet?
B - No. I'll start packing tomorrow. I can't wait to visit you in Puerto Rico. Actually, I was wondering what kind of clothes to pack.
A - I know it's cold where you are but it's really warm here. It's like summer all year ‘round. Bring summer clothes like shorts, sundresses, sandals, and, of course, your swimming suit.
B - Does it get cool at night?
A - No. It cools down a little a night but it's still warm at night.
B - So, will I need a sweater or a light jacket or anything like that?
A - No. Well. You could pack one light sweater because sometimes it's cool in places where they have air-conditioning. You get used to the warm weather outside and then you go in a movie theater here and freeze.
B - Do I need to bring a raincoat or umbrella?
A - Yeah. That's a good idea. I'd bring an umbrella but not the raincoat. It rains a lot here. They get bad thunderstorms here. When I moved here from San Diego at first the thunderstorms scared me a little bit. Now I'm used to them. My friend's apartment building was hit by lightning recently. It destroyed her computer and TV.
B - Is it humid there?
A - Yeah. It's REALLY humid. At first the humidity drove me crazy because I was sweating all of the time. After a few months I got used to it. Now when I go back to San Diego it feels really dry to me.
B - I'm really excited about going to Puerto Rico.
A - I can't wait to see you.
