Journal Entry:
Went to the train station, bought my train ticket / Reservations to Berlin tomorrow. Spent some time walkig around downtown again.

Decided to get some chores done and set off to do my laundry. Found the laundry mat, figured out how to buy a token (exact change needed, but everywhere is closed on Sunday), and started my wash. Two hours later I started getting worried that my clothes weren't done. Another hour and I'd seen people come in and get there close done in less than an hour. I called the emergency number (I think) on the wall, tried to explain that the washing machine was holding my clothes hostage. Finally get directions on how to force the machine to cycle, got my clothes out (flooding the laundrymat floor in the process) and started over again in a different machine. Total time to do one load: slightly more than five hours. Just what I wanted to do with my day.

Went to a pizza place and had a pizza that felt so nice I had another. I can't believe I ate two whole pizzas.
