Thank god, one of my cards worked at least. That means the 55 euros in my pocket can all be for beer & food. Why is it that McDonald’s in Europe are SO much more tasty than ours in London? Royal Cheese is SO tasty. And restaurants in Europe are SO cheap compared to London. Brussels Grill steak, fries & little bit of salad (enough) plus 2 sauces last night (mayonnaise AND Garlic, complimentary as my choice of Bearnaise wasn’t available) all for 15,90?! Even with disastrous exchange rates post-Brexit that is still no more than £13! In London that would cost you £25-30 at least. This, too, is why I travel.

313 In Brussels Grill. Rumsteak & small beer. 319 still waiting

313 In Brussels Grill. Rumsteak & small beer. 319 still waiting. Apparently this Sunday the Cine Paris has a live girl performing, so I will head back to have a look at her. So hungry now. 330. Still waiting my steak. It is busy, I must say, getting busier by the minute. OK 1532 the table that ordered food after me just had their 2 dishes delivered.

So this curiously sexless sojourn in Brussels nears its end. Not feeling in the mood for anything naughty at any point

So this curiously sexless sojourn in Brussels nears its end. Not feeling in the mood for anything naughty at any point. Maybe too anaesthetised with lovely ice cold watery Jupiler beer; maybe too many things to do back at home making me anxious to be back and get on with them; I don’t know. A brief stop in Cine Paris, then up to Rue d’Aerschot—Mariana the pick of the windows again. Her bosoms are extraordinary. But even with her I did not feel at all tempted to stay. A Brussels Grill Steak then back to bed. 8pm now, and I try to prepare to go out again.

So yes I went to Cine Paris and felt nothing. Went to Jimmy and Fifth Avenue and felt nothing

So, yes, I went to Cine Paris, and felt nothing. Went to Jimmy, and Fifth Avenue, and felt nothing. So, rather than flog this dead horse even further, I came straight to Brussels Grill. Maybe I will go on to Rue d’Aerschot afterwards; I doubt it. The horse has bolted. No point locking the stable doors now, my cow. My Eros has gone, sodden, like a drowned rat. Nothing left. Still early, 430pm, though, Friday night. If even Cine Paris and Fifth Avenue do not arouse me, then what chance do I have? I am mentally dead, subdued; as I say, sodden. Nothing can spark when it is so flooded, flooded with 5 solid days of booze. Even before the steak arrives, I am thinking about another Domino’s Pizza. Or a burger in the bar next to my hotel. 1659 This has been an UNUSUALLY long wait for my steak. Because I tried to order before I even sat down? No, she said, you must sit down first. Did she deliberately delay my food because of that?

Rain is predicted for later which will be a relief after all these hot days. Let today my last day be a day of food

Rain is predicted for later, which will be a relief after all these hot days. Let today, my last day, be a day of food—for Brussels Grill steak. And not think of anything else. If anything else happens, so be it; but I have done quite a lot on this holiday (Inna and Mariana), so let me relax today. Then quickly I force myself to Cine Paris, Jimmy, Fifth Avenue, then quickly I can get to where I really want to go—(I think) Rue d’Aerschot, Sexyworld kino and perhaps Mariana (again). Quickly I can then come back for a Brussels Grill steak and bed.

Brussels Grill looked packed so I came back to Boston Steak House for the first time. It is a bit emptier but as I expected more expensive!

Brussels Grill looked packed so I came back to Boston Steak House for the first time. It is a bit emptier but, as I expected, more expensive! Everything is extra [turns out when I got the bill it wasn’t, even though I am sure the menu says it is]. Salad that comes with the steak in Brussels Grill is an extra cost here. As is the sauce. But—the waitress is absolutely gorgeous. Curvy voluptuous young brunette. 10/10. What to say. Brussels. The England result cheered me so much, so I was in a positive mood. Cine Paris was OK. Not great, but not bad. Just pleased to see it is still there, despite rumours of its imminent demise. Then the street girls were pretty fantastic—my old “friend” Beatris, with cleavage spilling everywhere, her colleague on the other side of the road, similarly; my old friend black Bridget massive breasts bulging on next corner; 5th Avenue was poor, I’m afraid, though it felt good to be back there. NO stars left—Andrea left long ago, Lucy came & went so quickly, and now even Inna gone. One blonde girl, just going to a room with someone, was interesting, but that was it. Window girls, post-6pm, nothing special. So nothing special at all, but enough to keep me trying.
