I spent the day dealing with matters relating to transportation, how to go home. Nothing quite worked out as planned. I'd hoped to arrange my flight ticket back to Europe from Lahore. I found a reasonably cheap fare on on a Middle-Eastern carrier & made a reservation but later cancelled it when I discovered that I couldn't take my bike on the plane. I also arranged a train ticket from Peshawar to Lahore. To my grim amusement there was a discounted fair that didn't require the foreigners' concession that was cheaper. In other words the time I'd spent getting the concession had been wasted. It was an interesting look into bureaucracy.
