      Often as kids we used to play in these "high rises."
      Many a good summer day when school was out was spent merely going up in the lifts as if we had a purpose in doing so. Once at the top you then would race down the stair well. From I think 19 floors up there were two flights per floor. You had to partially slide your hand down the rounded tube like railing then estimating the best place to grip you then took hold and flung yourself to kind of swoop around the corner. Rapidly you built up such a velocity that you literally could on occasion when your technique was impeccable feel like you were on a fair ground ride. Then we would do it all over again but in a different one.
      Cheers mate
