Alexey very kindly took me to the ticket office, helped me buy the correct ticket as I didn't wish to climb the 210 stairs for a view from out around the dome, and then directed me in through the right door.

... but that was only to be expected. But she couldn’t do
anything. She told me to buy some ear drops to soften the earwax so that in a week or so it could be irrigated. No worries.
For dinner we walked off in a new direction – over the canal towards Bethnal Green, I think, and ate at a Mesopotamian restaurant. I had something resembling a lamb pizza, without cheese. A pide, it was called. Hope it catches ...
