The talks have meanwhile been finished, but yesterday it seemed as they would never end. Bilateral talks between European leaders should have been followed by a lunch, but the discussions kept dragging on and the lunch was postponed until it eventually became a dinner. This was planned for 8pm.
Angela Markel had become hungry and did not want to wait that long. She ventured out in Brussels - under heavy protection - to get some Belgian chips at the Jourdan square. Merkel ordered an andalouse topping with the fries.
