When I first posted these blogs four years ago (wow - time flies!) I was traveling alone...however, my mom didn't know that. In all these posts from the time I left Greece til when I arrived in Cairo, whenever I mention Belynda, I'm lying. A Vomitous Mess... is actually the first blog she was actually there for. You can tell because after she gets to Cairo I start referring to her piccolo computer, and we butt heads a little from time to time. Anywho, thought you should know.
You know that train that rushes by in the night, blowing its whistle to warn the unwary, disturbing the sleep of the vicinity. I was on that train. I watched the landscape slide by in a blur from the light emanating from the next cabin. It was sorta spooky.
So. I'm here. I ate breakfast at McDonald's outside Sirkeci station, and I may never have eaten anything so delicious in my life. Literally. It tasted a lot better and less processed than in Korea (sorry, I don't have much experience with Mickey D's brekke back home...I used to be a strictly Burger King girl). I'm staying at the lovely Side Pension in Sultanahmet, and it's literally right in the middle of everything, and it's really cute. For now, let that suffice. I'm off to explore. I'm meeting up with Belinda later on.
