Subject: Medicines and other stuff - Italy?
Hi guys...

Well, I have another big question...As you probably know from the post, my wife and I will be making our first trip to Italy next December and I have a few questions about getting medicines and other stuff:

1. My wife is diabetic, we'll have enough insulin for the time we spend there, but things can happen, how can we get it over there... do I need prescriptions over there to buy it. Is it hard to get?

2. Our video camera works with 120 volts....some of the hotels only have 220, is there a converter that I can buy to recharge my batteries?

3. Is there a restriction as to how many tapes (8mm) for the camcorder I can bring to Italy from the US? Is there a customs issue?

And if theres anything that I'm not considering please advise.

Thanks...

Fernando
