Summer holidays

After all the frenzy of July and having my friends plus kids over, it's awfully quiet at home. Everyone left over the weekend - F & S plus kids back to Moscow, T back to Madrid and C also to Madrid to spend a few days with T before heading back to Provence.

I have 6 days to go before I leave for Las Vegas with my 5-year old son, J. We're going to visit my sisters and meet my three-month old niece. We'll be spending three weeks there and will hopefully, be able to try out lots of new restaurants. As soon as I get to the States, I'm going to replace my dead Canon Powershot - any suggestions for a compact digital camera anyone?

My Canon powershot packed up too recently. Just bought an Olympus SP-550UZ...a little bigger than the powershot but still quite compact. It has a 18x optical zoom that goes from 28 mm to 400...figured it would be great for travel...lots more bells and whistles though...have three weeks to learn it all before I get head off to Spain and then New York...

Have a great time stateside...I love Las Vegas...all the color and show...

Cheers,
Liz

Thanks for the tip, Liz! I'll have a look when I get to Vegas. Where are you off to in Spain? If you need any suggestions, let me know.
