I would like to go to City2 to buy some more shoes for myself but they seem to think it is still high on the list of targets for “jihadis” planning their next pathetic “outrage”; it would be just my luck to get killed nipping in for a pair of shoes. A grey day but seeming to be brightening, unfortunately. I hope it darkens again and starts pelting down.
One large Stella (free) in the hotel, three large Jupilers here in L’Orient Express. Don’t think I can take too much more (after two pints in London before getting on the train). Amazing how with a little bit of beer inside you, you suddenly cease to worry about “terrorism”.
Oh yes I want those German porn kabins, while there are still some left at all. Can’t wait to lose myself in pornographic priapic frenzy now. 11 days to go only. I fear attacks on an ICE but think of the number of cross-European trains there are every single day to every single city, thousands of such trains a day, you would have to be unlucky to be on the ONE that was attacked.
It seems inevitable that the Islamic terrorists ARE sooner or later going to do something truly huge and horrific, like detonating a dirty bomb or nuclear bomb in some city centre. Brussels or Vienna or Berlin or London or Paris. Just makes me think I must travel more now, it is now or never. These might be my last chances to travel to my favourite places.
The Belgian and French police seem to have shot and rounded up a good few jihadis in the last 24 hours; maybe Brussels WILL start to become a bit safer again. If they can really step up to the plate now.
Don’t worry about a dirty bomb, all there is is pornography. Go out more rampantly and wildly than ever for all out pornography and prostitution. More likely to die of heart attack or cancer than any random act of terror.
In retrospect you think people could have stopped a lot of these things. The taxi driver smelt ammonia and noticed white powder on the suitcases; they would not let him touch the suitcase to put them in and take them out of the boot. They were angry at not having room for all 5 suitcases so left 2 cases behind. Who goes on holiday but just leaves 2 cases behind if they won’t fit in the car? They wore black gloves on one hand. All quite suspicious, and next time you pick up a fare like this you will drive them to the police station won’t you? An hour before Bataclan started in Paris, someone saw a car having terrible trouble reversing into a parking space, and then 3 men sat in the car for 45 minutes wearing heavy black coats even though it was a hot night. Next time you see this you will call the police won’t you? The bombs went off at Brussels airport so Brussels knew they were now under the long feared attack, but they let the metro keep running like nothing has happened? Next time an attack starts you will suspend the metro straightaway won’t you?
