I'm leaving for Brazil in a month, and feel a little stuck with packing.
I'm going for at least three months (and maybe tacking on a month in Argentina if the money holds out), and am going all over (from Sao Paulo to Minas to Bahia to Rio to Floripa, by bus, plane, and riverboat!). I want to bring as little as possible, but for three months, this gets tricky!
What I'm most concerned about is bringing a camera and a computer. I will be photographing pousadas and making websites for them in exchange for temporary lodging. I have a three year old beat up Powerbook and a Nikon D70, and I don't know how I'm going to travel without them getting stolen, lost, or damaged. Does anyone have a solution to this?
Other than that I wanted to bring a few changes of clothes and necessities. Anyone have any other, general advice?
maybe best if you dont think that you can travel/stay for free whil offering to take photos and doing promotion for the places you will visit.
for sure they got this offers before.....
best advise I can give you
have anough money to be independend ,nobody is waiting for you.

Um, marlis, I already have a few clients queued up, and am coming with enough money. I'm not sure where you're getting this, or how your response is relevant--however, if you have any advice on packing, I would much appreciate.
I have always my cameras in ziplock bags against dust or humidity.
while walking around I keep them in a old shoulder bag,never in a special camera bag.
as for clothings I would recommend loose fitting 100% cotton or cotton/linen mix and light colours.
Moskitos like you when you dress in dark colours.
enjoy your time in Brazil
