Taxi eventually came and found desk and they also said 9 bus so ...
... rest while Jane decided to explore the stairway.

Once at the top, though, it was worth the climb where you can see out across the city and the river and, even over to an island. Jane had to laugh when, at the top, a group of young Spanish ...
