Im typing on a belgian keyboard, the letters are a little different so bear with me. First off I want to say thank you
for all those that
responded to this thread. I really needed help and you guys came to the rescue. Thats amazing. Honestly. Never in my life would I have thought that an
internet forum would actually come to help one of their members in a desperate time of need. We exist digitally, we have digitized personas. But what
just happened on this board was probably the most compassionate thing a group of strangers has ever done for me. However, I now know that you arent
strangers. We are a community.
Once again, Thank you
This message is taking ages to type but let me give you a quick update:
- I couldnt find anywhere to sleep so I lined up 3 chairs and slept on them. The next day I found out that it was -6 degrees below.
- I managed to find a bag of half eaten cheetos and snacked on those all night.
- I got a new ticket and boarded the train to Belgium at 7am the next morning.
got some money!
It's hard to get internet access here (especially hard if you dont speak the language) so this is probably going to be my last post until around the
4th or 5th. I picked up a few gifts for some of the members that offered to wire cash into my account and other extremly helpful things so I'll shoot
you a u2u to get your address. I think you're going to like them.
Oh, by the way...Happy New Years! Ill give you the full update on what happened when I go back home.
