Cornwall day 4

Note: day 3 journal was late due to iPad failing to recognise SIM card for 24 hours, until I realised that powering off an iPad isn't really powering it off, even if you hold the button down and swipe to power down etc. - for future ref, try putting into air safe mode and back again. Eden Project. On arrival were told by surly teenage eco warrior type at entrance that our 12 month passes marked "Adult" are only valid for... um... adults, and we would have to pay for the kids to get in - this despite the fact that we registered everyone at the same time 11 months and 2.5 weeks ago. Resigned to having to cough up, when kindly lady at the cash desk suggests checking with customers services; considerably more helpful customer services lady confirms that the boys' memberships are still valid. Result - the first time in my life that I have actually got value from a 'use as many times as you like' pass. Absolutely humongous rainstorms while in the 'rainforest' biosphere (or whatever they're called) add to the sense of realism, as they do when also trying to eat ice creams outside later on. Nobody sick in the middle of the night, yet...
