Afterwards I found out it was nearly a $100 collect phone call. During the call, some guy came up to the phone and started pushing buttons, further distressing me and my mom, whom I left in considerable distress, helpless on the other end of the line.
(Wondering why I'm being so presumptuous as to publish my own emails and letters? Read this.)
City of Haarlem, where I ate some delicious profiteroles in front of this cathedral with my friend Stephanie and roommate Naomi
Is alone at airport 8:30 pm Amsterdam time.
Cell phone: Got cell phone in Dutch so can't figure it out. Can only call at airport. Got cell phone in Amsterdam, guy not that helpful. Today went to Haarlem and guy at a cell phone place there helped a lot, but when she tried it, it didn't work after all. Was impatient to get cell and may have gotten one that is expensive. Feeling cut-off. "I'm lonely and I hate it here!"
Email: She can only get it in Central Amsterdam. Leiden University has no access to email.
Keys: Only have 3 so she doesn't have one. Can't get in or out.
Counterfeit: Went and had money changed. Received a counterfeit 50. Finally found a place that took it.
Leiden: Went this morning. Got there at 10 am and there were no appointments available. Will go again tomorrow or Monday.
Rent: Was told that info received in Colorado was wrong and that she owed $3000 euros. It's due in 5 days. Wants Ron to wire money from her savings account to her landlord.
Bus Home: Amber knows number of bus but it never came. She needs to get off phone as it's about 9 pm and buses run less frequently at night.
Went with Steph and Naomi to Haarlem to Corrie Ten Boom house. Steph and Naomi want to go touristing tomorrow but Am may not. Has too much to do and not getting anything accomplished.
