Ministry of Magic, Department of Tourism

Vibeke and I found Platform 9 and 3/4 at Kings Cross Station last summer. Alas, it wasn't September yet, so we couldn't pass through the brick wall to get onboard the Hogwarts Express...so we went to York instead and found Mad Alice Lane. If you think she was mad before, she's actually quite peeved now...
I half expected all the little carved faces in the York Minster to call out to me in their scratchy stone voices1, but they remained silent. The poor fellow with the crow on his head was having a particularly difficult day.

1 Read Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell by Susanna Clarke for explicit details.
