      Hi Pavitrata,
      Thanks for taking the time to suggest some cameras for me to look at. I have never heard
      of the one that won the award you mention and will check it out. I must say I am finding
      out just how hopelessly hooked I am on taking pictures now that it's driving me slightly
      crazy that so many shots I try to take aren't coming out right. Interior shots - forget it! As
      the daylight wanes, same story! At least I know that dropping a camera can be part of the
      territory once a hobby reaches the next level of commitment.

      p.s. thankfully I am finally on the mend. However, I cannot promise that means any great
      missives are waiting in the wings. Right now I am too tired in that contented kind of way
      from having done lots of sightseeing today. I wish I was staying here more than a mere
      week. It is extraordinarily beautiful. I'll have to try to shift into travelogue mode soon and
      see if I can convey it.
