So yes a dire evening in Brussels; but mostly my fault. I was tired, I arrived late. Time I got to Fifth Avenue almost everyone had gone. Empire was like a tomb. No other customers. On the ICE to Nuremberg now; changing at Frankfurt. Couple of minutes till we leave. My pox horribly red when I arrived in Brussels, and horribly red when I woke about 4 in the morning for a wee. We will see if I can salvage any Eros from this holiday at all; even if it is manual only!
