No I did not pay cash. I paid by Visa card. I do preface my remark

but thought they would transfer the amounts etc to the computer
later) and the receipt came out of a small receipt book!
Nothwithstanding the above, I had a wonderful time. Seeing the VA was
like all my Xmases in one. And I enjoyed the “Treasures” exhibition
