26. My baggage crossed the border with me.
A frame of the Charter on Earth Life to give to the Pope is in this bag.

27. This time, I made a good plan so that I would not go through the inconvenient process that I had done when I crossed the border last time.
I walk to a train station three kilometers from the border.

28. It’s downhill, so if you’re not in trouble on the surface of the road, you can move your suitcase. It has four double wheels, so eight wheels disperse the load. Three kilometers is fine to walk with my baggage.

29. I am arriving at the train station. There are few houses here.
Now on the train, I go to the quarters of Kyutendil, about 20 km away (which bypasses a long distance by railway). I will come back here by train and start walking.

30. There are only two or three trains in a day. At 4:10 pm, a train is scheduled. This time is consistent with Google Information. This crew was very kind, though he could not speak English. With his kindness I waited for the train in his warm office.

36. Today I ate snacks in a whole day. I have to fill my stomach with dinner.
In Europ, pork is cheap and delicious. I need a break time. Tomorrow is an off-day.
