Journal Entry:
Spent the morning walking. Nothing's open since it's sunday. I spent most of the time wandering around monuments in parks, but I couldn't even guess at what the monuments were for. Had lunch at the same place I had diner last night since it was the only open place I could find. This time my pizza came with an egg in the middle, but it was considerably better than last night's.

Caught the train. Spent two hours at the Turkish border stabding in this line to get my passport stamped, being told I needed to go stand in another line for my visa first (US$45, which again I didn't have - saved by the German Marks again), then go stand in the first line again. I very nearly missed my train (the conductor had to open the door for me) with my luggage on board.
