He was fine in the morning, a little sore in the mouth and muscles and quite subdued and flat but otherwise OK. We shelved plans for a return visit to the museum and had a stroll through the almost deserted streets of the old city. It was Friday morning, holy day. The hotel allowed us to stay in our room ...
