Rob was enjoying this opportunity to inspect the infamous Corridor at such a leisurely pace. For him, it was the most interesting part of the tour. He was only half-listening to the presentation as he poked around, examining the exterior walls and peering into the apparatus before stepping up the little ramp into the chamber itself. As their footfalls echoed through the empty space, he was reminded of that old news article he had been reading about the early days of inspection technology and those long tunnels people had such trouble negotiating. It struck him as odd that this new system could be so reminiscent of the old days, like a high-tech 2.0 version or something. Glancing down at the gleaming, polished floor, he could almost see the reflection of his shoes and trousers in the glassy surface. He wondered offhand if anyone ever had a slip-and-fall on the slick walkway as they rushed to make a connection. Then he realized that this inspection tour was probably the only time during operating hours the place wasn't completely overloaded with customers. People rarely fell down when they were packed in like sardines.
