Bring enough clothing for one week. Laundromat facilities are available at each location. Dress as you would in North America but be sure to bring a light rainproof jacket and a sweater. Sensible walking shoes or sneakers are essential.

Linen:

Linen and towels are provided by the residences and changed once a week.

Laptops: All rooms have wifi access.

Printing facilities are available at each location

Electrical Devices

Electrical Current: 220 Volts. If you are bringing a hair dryer or curler, you will need either one that is adaptable to that voltage or some sort of transformer.
