I had given the Camera for repair - a non-functional Flash !
When I called the workshop - the person - Dilip-babu told me that he cannot find spares.
It was dissapointing & I told him that I would take back the Camera (an Olympus - which is not the camera of popular choice here)
The person called me a few minutes back to tell me that the Flash was now ok !! How ?
Was the person bluffing when I called him in the morning ?
Will find out when I take delivery some time in the evening.

Went to the workshop an hour later. The man simply handed over the camera - repaired.
The computer 'board' had been repaired.
Took a few snaps for testing it out. Seems ok for now.
Cot an 8GB CF card. This should help.

How do I Start ?

To Plan & Prepare is a Major 'High'

Tickets - Qatar Airways for 1st June'12. Its a long haul. The hour-and-a-half wait at Doha would fly; assuming that I have to change terminals. We fly to Frankfurt & then the day after - the Lan Airlines flight to Madrid. The VISA was handed over to me on 20th of last month.
The Hostel bookings are done. So, at the moment - it looks like Madrid - Segovia - Avila - Salamanca - Toledo - Cordoba - Granada to Barcelona. Three berths in the Night Train from Granada to Bracelona has also been booked.
Have opted for a Madrid Card. It should help - if not in strict monetary terms; at least for the value of preferential entry to Museums - The Prado, Reina Sofia & The Thyssen Bornemisza.
Have made the necessary advance booking for a guided tour of the Alhambra & Generalife gardens in Granada.
Made the necessary arrangements for my Hike to the Pyreneese.
Now - I will have to remember to send a line of confirmation of my schedule to all the places that are pre booked. This I will do from Frankfurt.
Believe I will have 2nd June'12 - all to myself.
