... artists to instill awe in visiting dignitaries. It proves hard to hear our guide's commentary over the voices of excited school parties. We are all whisked around quickly with little time to admire the detailed craftsmanship on the peacock-decorated glass ceiling in the Wedding Hall or the Edwardian scenes of parades that adorn its walls.
