Subject: Films and x-rays
Dear Paolo, I am Debbie's husband Kurt. I am a professional photographer and work for a newspaper with a large and traveling staff. Debbie asked my opinion about traveling, film and x-ray machines, and Sue pretty much covered everything that I would tell you. The trick about mixing some fast film in will usually get you a hand-check without too much trouble. The one exception I have encountered was the UK. They absolutely would not allow anything through the security checkpoint that had not been through the machines. I asked for a supervisor and then their supervisor, and eventually had to relent, or swim back to the US. Otherwise, Sue is right on the mark. Kurt Weber
