The man brought me the Rolleiflex and I paid him 250 guilders on account, pending the arrival of the Rolleicord from Batavia.
We then started to develop films. The water here seemed of excellent quality, better than anywhere else. I developed 3 rolls by 12:30, all good, and could distinguish no difference between the results from D-76 and Agfa 17. With Hugo’s valuable assistance and a little ice as the afternoon became warmer we finished developing 7 rolls or half the total number. The finished films were good and by far the cleanest we have had.
Late in the afternoon I mixed up the last of the hypo and promptly broke the bottle by tipping it over making a bad mess, fortunately on a tiled floor. We then went out on one of the very convenient tricycle cars to get some more and finally secured some from one of the few stores open, also a map of Sulawesi.
