    Good news, bad news...

    The good news:

    The following arrived at my home in Colorado:

    Ilford Pan F+ 120 (5 rolls)
    Ilford Delta 100 120 (5 rolls)
    Ilford Delta 400 120 (3 rolls)
    Ilford Delta 100 4x5" x 25 sheets
    Perceptol 3x1L
    Arista Stop bath
    Ilford Rapid Fixer
    Kodak Photo Flo 200

    The bad news: I'm in Sofia, Bulgaria*

    *Alright, I have to admit that Sofia is a very lovely city. In fact, I just had two Guinness beers at the Fox and Hound pub tonight, which is Guinness' 250 year anniversary. Not bad, not bad at all. I think the film can wait.

    Cheers.

    Lucky you, not having to play with all those stinky chemicals. Hope you have some film with you!

    Your location tag doesn't reveal it, but whoever goes to Sofia, Bulgaria and is adventureless enough to drink Guinness in the 'Fox and Hound', instead of enjoying the local brews must be a Brit! Unbelievable.

    I don't think I'd go to Sofia to drink ground charcoal

    There should be some very good local Bulgarian wines or is it just us Brit's who buy them ?

    Yes, you do. Then you leave the store while saying (instead of thinking) 'look how cheap it is', not realizing that they raise the price as you leave, and the locals hate you for it. You did it in Spain. You did it in Portugal, France, CZ... You will do it in Bulgaria too, I'm sure.

    I hate Guinness, but I love English ales, and the Bitters and...

    Well, you can't be all bad. People who make good beer are good people!
