You may recall the saga of the Stationary Travelator Parts One and Two. You may recall that back in January the Garden City folk were predicting a 26 week turnaround to replace the busted travelator that comes up in the main Food Court.
I thought they were "under-promising and over-delivering" as the old maxim goes, but no, recently they unveiled their schmick, new moving stairway pretty much half a year after it was munted.
Attempting to represent its Metropolis-like wonder with a still photograph is a fool's errand, but trust me when I say that travelling up or down this modern wonder is an unforgettable experience. It's how I imagine shopping in Coruscant would feel.
