Great question on clothing for hot climate, Karen!
If you are traveling light and there is a possibility of having to hand wash clothing — avoid cotton — it will present challenge to dry (with hand wringing) and will be a sodden mess in the bottom of your suitcase, backpack, pannier, etc. Instead invest in shirts, socks
I’d like to take a minute to kind of recognize and give credits where credits due. Since we’re all so busy in the midst of playing some serious catching up after being away in Vegas for almost a week (although to some of us it was a week or longer), it is so easy to overlook the most important thing!
