    My wife and I will be going to Peru in the near future. While we're going as part of a tour, we will have a day or so of free time, mainly in Lima, at both the beginning and end of the tour. Does anyone know of any shops I might browse for used goodies? And is there any hope of finding black-and-white 120 film there in case I run out?

    Steve, a few years ago there was a thread were Flavio81 mentioned film stockists in Lima. I know the pro dealers were quite close to my hotel when we stayed there about 10 years ago.

    I had problems getting Tmax 100 when in South America but FP4/HP5 and Fomapan were easy to find, try sending Flavio a PM in case he misses this thread,he was last online yesterday, he lives in Lima.

    ... and he just replied to the PM!

    Thanks Ian for the recommendation.

    Some years ago a great APUGger came here, PM'd me and was so kind to bring me a Mamiya 127/3.8C medium format lens. I forgot his name, but I was very happy to meet another forumer.

    Here we used to have many photographic services available but i'm really lamenting the loss of E6 processing.
