hmmm, not enough white space to list all the possibilities, so i'll tell just a few.


bring anytihng you're not sure you can't get in the other country, but you know you'll miss dealry.  eg spices, personal stuff like toothpaste and deodorant (western barbarians usually use the stuff ;-), clothing, contacts of all the people you may want to actually contact back in the hone country, and personal items like pics and such so you can remember home ifyou get homesick.

all identification

anything related to medical conditions, like, what kind of medication he/she can't take, what, if anything, is wrong with him/her.

ok, i'll pass the torch to the next bloke...  :)

well, his visit with reality might be a good one, even if guys are the majority of co-workers.  :)  women are doubled edged swords, so i don't see how it could be a worse situation.  :)
