I went to see the 4 operas of the Ring Cycle in Valencia last week, in the brand new Palau de les Arts opera house. Terrific singing and a beautifully designed building - for looks and listening but NOT for using: there are 5 floors, served ONLY by 2 small elevators, which would each hold no more than 6 persons. Stairs off course.
Night #2, DF and I got into the elevator and persons 5 and 6, and it refused to budge, claiming 'sobre carga', I guess too heavy, chaps.
I was very p.d off, and stormed out of the elevator and up the stairs.
NSV#1 - All I thought was, 'rubbish lift', not 'omigod, I'm the fatty' (I wasn't #6 but in the olden days, I'd have thought it all my fault.
NSV#2 - I climbed 5 flights to the top balcony without breaking sweat or breath. Course, rage might have helped but I'm fit!
