The black marble staircase in the Auditorium is a beautiful feature but is is also a little dangerous because it is hard to see where the steps are on the way down.
Last night, as we were leaving our class, I managed to fall on the staircase because I missed the last step before the turn half way down. It was entirely my own fault, I should have either held on to the rail or been more careful to watch where I was going.
Fortunately, I only fell down one step landing rather ungainly on the platform half way down. Even so it hurt and it still hurts this morning. I will be taking greater care in future and advise you to do the same.
I must remember that I am nearly 65 not 25!
