Don't forget our photo competition, sponsored by ISIC. We're offering a prize to the reader who can send in a photograph of the Independent on Sunday taken in the most unusual holiday destination you can possibly imagine.

The prize for the most bizarre and interesting picture will be a pair of flight tickets to anywhere in the USA or Europe, which can be used any time before the end of next summer. You still have a couple of weeks: send your entries, by 15 October 1997, to Unusual Places, Travel Desk, Independent on Sunday, 1 Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5DL.
