But I want to spend all my money in Berlin, Vienna, Munich and Brussels. For the incredible memory of Adelina in Manhattan, of Amanda in WSK, Jackie in WSK, Lucy in 5th Avenue, Inna, Andrea, Julia in 5th Avenue. Etc etc etc. Those incredible highs. That is what it is all for and will warm me when I am old and cold.
Three days off to come! Four nights in Max will cost me an extra 48 euros as I thought. I will hold off, till I know what is happening at work, if anything. How amazing it would be to walk back in to Manhattan a dark cold January night in the New Year and see Adelina again; like it was last month the Monday night I arrived in Fifth Avenue and then Inna appeared and squeezed onto seat next to me to speak to man to my left, but her bottom was pressed up against my bottom, and I didn’t move and she neither. Then we went to room together. I think about those two a lot. I COULD GO TO BRUSSELS TODAY!!!!!
“I still think there must be an Esmeralda out there with my name on her but I may never find her” I wrote in 2010 after my one night Vienna visit, where I discovered Pour Platin shut down. Well, yes I have found her haven’t I—FROM Twelfth Night 2014 trip to Vienna under Wagnerian skies and Fortuna Blonde, Amanda WSK, Andrea, Julia and Lucy in 5th Avenue, Adelina in Manhattan, not to mention the great times I had in Soho with Zara, Maria, Lavinia, Marianna, etc. Loyalty and fidelity weighed me down, and then for most of the past 12 months the pox weighed me down.
