Trip to the Shard

For a birthday treat we went up the Shard.

Never have seen so many staff doing pointless jobs. There were staffed lifts, and you have to change lifts halfway up (due to the weight of the lift cable preventing really long lift runs). There were people standing outside the lift to guide you around the corner to the other lift. There were people to take your ticket and touch it to the reader. It just went on and on!
