So no I did not manage to crack the Vienna nut and never will now

So no, I did not manage to crack the Vienna nut, and never will now. There feels nothing here for me. I have not found even one, or two places, to make me feel at home here. The hotel meal was poor and the Augustinerkeller meal was even worse. A relief to grab a McDonald’s from Westbahnhof on my way back tonight. I did manage to find my way to Fortuna Kino in Favoritenstraße. At last, a good old-fashioned adult cinema, and a good Italian film. I think Italian pornography is the best. At last, finally, I managed to sustain a full erection. It took me three nights to even manage a proper erection—that says it all. The Gurtel was meant to be the biggest red light district in Vienna, and back in the snow in 2005 I came down it and was going in one club after another, they never seemed to end. And to find the only place where I slept with a girl in Vienna totally gone, an empty lot where it used to be, was particularly disspiriting, and is really a great symbol of how pointless this trip now feels. As much as I love this hotel, I will never come to Vienna again. Good riddance, they cry!

This is my last chance to save Vienna. Against my better judgement I go out for a third night looking for something exciting. After all, it’s quite simple—No.6 tram all the way there, and if no good, No.6 all the way back. Surely I can find one film to turn me on?

I came out into the cold Vienna midday, but still with a light sheen of sweat on my forehead from last night’s fever. The Augustinerkeller steak was a great disappointment. Everything in Vienna has been a disappointment. Berlin is much better for me; even Munich is more straightforwardly enjoyable. The most enjoyable thing in Vienna is to just get on a tram, any tram, and watch the city passing by.

I have come to the conclusion that I don’t want to do anything naughty here in Vienna

I have come to the conclusion that I don’t want to do anything naughty here in Vienna. Once again, the words from Smiles of a Summer Night come back to me: ‘Desiree, I’m sorry. I never should have come. To flirt with rescue when one has no intention of being saved.’ The Esmeraldas of Vienna threw themselves at me one after the other like moths bashing their brains out against a lighthouse. I was immovable; scarcely priapic. Like Dorian Gray I really do seem to have ‘lost the passion and forgotten the desire’. All I want to do now is try to get —–‘s boots.

No! I can’t believe the new barman flicking through the TV channels wants to watch snooker

No! I can’t believe the new barman, flicking through the TV channels, wants to watch snooker. This is my cue to leave, if you will excuse the pun. Oh 6pm, I think she has gone. No reason for me to stay now.
