We've all been there. You're on holiday, it's lunchtime, you've found your restaurant and you are prepped to order that local speciality that everyone in the office has been banging on about since they made their own pilgrimage. But wait. A problem: how exactly do you say the word "potjevleesch"? Most of us, it seems, would pronounce it thus: "I'll have the steak frites."

CAMDEN has had it, some people will tell you. It's increasingly just a magnet for suburban Loaded lads trying to look cool, while the truly hip have sought pastures new. But the spirit of Camden somehow endures in places like Bar Gansa, perhaps because it never was painfully trendy. Regulars love to linger over cappuccinos or jars of margarita in the bar, despite the cramped conditions (tables are for diners only). Food is tapas, but has evolved into something quite unique and comes with the added bonus of an agreeably chaotic atmosphere and an impossibly good-looking and well-dressed staff.

One-day internationals are almost invariably dismissed by the experts as the sideshow to Test cricket. Yet this Texaco series may prove by the end of the summer to have been highly relevant to the six Test matches that are to follow. Some of England's personnel will change and the Australians are, at the moment, not an especially good one-day side. The longer, drawn- out form of the game is vastly different from the technical aspect and the Australians' main objective is to retain the Ashes - or so the argument goes.
