No word yet from David.

I began preparations early to develop the remaining 7 rolls of film only to find that the developer which I had carefully mixed yesterday and put outside to cool had been thrown away by the room boy. Hugo went to the town and got some more, but it was 9:30 before we got started. We finished after lunch.

Hugo and I took a trip around the town in one of the tricycles operated by a boy in the rear. The general features of the town were uninteresting but the shopping district and the aquarium were especially good, especially the latter. The peculiar tropical fish in it were unbelievable in form and color.

Two dozen rolls of Kodachrome came from Batavia and cost about 88 guilders.
