So my hoped-for cheap, short little trip to Brussels at the end of October, just to tide me over till the long trip to Vienna, turned into an expensive 7-nighter, my longest ever stay in Brussels. My financial recovery will be delayed somewhat. I learned some new things—I MUST eat something for breakfast when on holiday; it transforms the whole day to come. I must force myself to spend a long time in Cine Paris. I must spend more time in Rue d’Aerschot, having now discovered the Retro Bar right at the end, and Red Devil just before that. I did feel I went further than before in Brussels this time—with Leyla, in Cine Paris and in Rue d’Aerschot. I hope I can break through to a deeper level in Vienna as well. Don’t hold back. Spend the money, break through to the other side.
