Having mulled, perused, consulted and agonised I decided that in the end the really vital thing was probably not to be dependent on local electricity supplies...After all, I have a phone and a camera I'll be desperate to keep fully charged, and I'm told that several power cuts in a day are the norm. So, with all thanks to everyone who advised so kindly, I've gone for this. It runs on ordinary AA batteries, which won't take up much space in my luggage.Smaller memory than some, but truly Liz, I can't imagine I'd ever want to have my full music collection on it...I just LIKE CDs. In the box, with the details of the performer and pretty pictures and everything.
Anyway, it's ordered. 2 out of 3 offspring are manically pro iRiver anyway,- so they are cheering me on. And it comes tomorrow (day off, so time to play) , and cost less than £70 (I plan to spend the one penny I've saved on wild frivolity) which has to be good, I hope!
Shame it's not pink, but you can't have everything.
Now all I need is a few more suggestions of music to play on it. Not you, Steve...there are a good few Steve recommendations on my short list already!

i'm sorry but it simply has to include the ever wonderful bonzo dog doo dah band 'hunting tigers out in india - http://www.lyricsdownload.com/bonzo-dog-doo-dah-band-hunting-tigers-out-in-india-lyrics.html.

you can buy and download it from itunes shop. And you can think of me cos i'm going to see them live in bristol on 7th Nov. how perfect a suggestion is that :)

Believe it or not, Caroline my dear, but LCM actually has "The Best of Bonzo Dog...", which of course includes that immortal track.
So OK, I'll play it and think of you (in between various other bits of my music collection which are likely to have the same impact!)
