    Spare batteries (preferably Lythium due to the cold) are difficult to find outside of bigs towns, but there is no problems where ordinary film is concerned (there are cheaper than in Europe, but the date must be checked).

  • Check In

    So… You’re ready to go. Your equipment is heavy and you’re got about to much weight fot boarding . You’re may be lucky… Your airline may go by “piece concept” that’s allows you to have 2×32 kilos… What I do suggest is that you buy all “towns clothing” once there… Trousers cost about 10 Euros, which is most certainly cheaper than paying an excess of weight (50 Euro/kilo).
