Sat 9 Jan

Have found a favourite haunt in Mons for coffee and cake. They always give you a little taster of something with your drink, even if you haven't ordered any food, which is a nice touch. The kind of thing that makes you want to go back. And I like drinking coffee in mugs without handles. Makes me feel more sophistimicated.

Went back to the local cinema and this time saw a rather bad film: "Away We Go." Absolute pretentious, middle-class tosh. Damn these middle classes and their mundane hang-ups! A couple who are expecting a baby take a trip around America (and Canada) to revisit old friends to test where they should end up relocating. Of course they're all a hugely unlikeable bunch with a range of "issues," which succeeds in making the main couple quite likeable. Which they're not really, in my opinion. Anyway, not one I'd recommend.


  1. What's the name of the coffee place? Been trying to find a decent place myself.

  2. Le Pain Quotidien on Rue d'Havré.
