Okay so there are these stairs.
There are about 500 sections of stairs totalling 3,922 steps.
They think it's pretty.
It makes them feel strong. And young.
And I can understand that.
I'm impressed by people who can make it to the top.
Just a little bit.
They actually post a guard at the bottom of the stairs to keep people from going up. He will stop you if you try to ascend.
But he isn't there all night. He arrives some time in the morning.
He's not a bad guy, he's just doing his job.
He will even take a group photo for you if you ask nicely.
