England 24 - France 13

Ahh, I am a happy boy today. I "watched" the 6nations rugby game by clicking refresh repeatedly on the BBC Sport 606 webpage, which I wouldn't recommend to others, you do miss something of the atmosphere. Still, the right result!

Last day in Istanbul, I have a train leaving from Istanbul Sirkeci Station tonight at 8:30pm, an overnight sleeper to Thessaloniki in Greece, where I'll change on to an Intercity to Athens, arriving tomorrow mid-afternoon.

So now I'm going to visit a couple of palaces, Topkapi and Dolmabahce, and buy a few nibbles for the train. Full Istanbul report this afternoon. Here's my schedule for the rest of my trip:
