The refreshment center is always a popular stop on the tour. The visitors enjoy a brief rest in the quiet on the main encoding surface, originally compiled by the pre-Singularity librarians of Loc. Experience the authentic information through the antique connectors, with animats slowly twirling overhead and the scents of the old city wafting in the mild breeze. Refreshment both for the body, mind and soul, as the hus would once have said.
