I don't feel much better today but I force myself to go out! We go to the COPE (Cooperative Orthotic Prosthetic Enterprise) visitor centre which we both thought was really near our hotel but it wasn't! We eventually arrive and find that the visitor centre is attached to the hospital, which makes sense.
The centre is …

Now it's my turn to not feel well! I think it is a virus thing, so we take it easy and watch HBO and an episode of the new Sherlock Holmes - I love it!!

Many firsts for me today; on a bicycle, on new years day, cycling around a capital city! We hired two bicycles for £2 for a day.
