This week, it's been my turn to choose some of my favourites from the Guide.
I chose this entry as one of my 'desert island' entries because I love the phraseology of it. The vivid descriptions really put you in the picture and are somehow almost emotive... 'the building; a magnificent, curvaceous body of glass', 'it looks like a huge reptilian Jack-in-the-box, sprung out from its hiding place' and 'its huge lop-eared leaves hanging down'. But it's not just that - it's factual and practical too - a balance of all good things.
In addition, if I was stranded on a desert island, I think this entry would be useful too!
