At the corner Kortenaerkade / Zeestraat stands a hotel of the Hilton chain. I have never been a guest in any one of them, the world over. On a bad day that makes me feel something is lacking in my life, or it might be something that is still to come.
These days one hears stories about people who are on the brink of death and want to fulfill one great last wish. That might make them take off to a far away, inhospitable country. Often the result is miserable.
It soothes me that the fulfillment of my last wish lies just round the corner.
