It was a great trip, although we had a bit of last-minute drama which had us worried that we might have to cancel. A few nights before we were to leave, I stepped on a sewing needle which broke off and imbedded itself in my left foot, in the fleshy part on the ball of the foot. We spent all night in Emergency - it took over six hours to get to see a doctor! The needle was in too deep for him to get out, so I had to go in for out-patient surgery the folllowing day. They had to make an incision and dig around for it (I saved it as a souvenir :). There were only a couple of stitches and didn't hurt at all, but being on the bottom of my foot it was a bit awkward. Thankfully, I was still able to get around, albeit a bit more slowly than usual. It didn't impede our sight-seeing at all.
Here's the x-ray of my foot, - the arrow shows the needle:
