The trouble is that Kodachrome II can't really be
processed anywhere on the planet anymore. Even the
more recent Kodachrome (K14 instead of K12) can now
only be processed at Dwaynes but they don't do the
older process.

People try to get around this by processing the film
as B&W instead. Kodachrome is a bit tricky tho as I
think it has a remjet backing (can't remember off the

You could try asking around at the star and shadow to
see if anyone there has done it ever or fancies a go

u.s. as the dollar is still preety low against the

Good Luck!
