So we all headed out like I said. Luckily, this was a totally free experience haha. The only thing I should have had to pay for was the bus, but the Brazilians bought a pass that covered up to 5 people so we all used it. Thanks guys.
The camp was saddening. At times I wondered why camps like this remained with so much information about their brutality.
...Then I remembered that we are doomed to repeat our mistakes of the past if it is forgotten. I wanted to go to Auschwitz after this visit.
The crematoriums were troubling along with the photos of all the corpses, but I wont forget.. that's for sure.
The guys were going out to the 'fest when we got back into Munich so I went just to check the lost and found again. Of course my wallet being there would have been too good to be true so I left a little upset I could not join the guys.
Back at my hostel my package had not arrived. What was I going to do? On top of that they had cut the cable lock off my bag which I had locked to my bed. They did this because I had not checked back in and paid for my last two nights before 12h00. I had a lengthy calm but very angry conversation with the woman who appeared to be in charge. She knew it was miscommunication on their part so she ended up just giving me 15 euro (which was very generous) for my lock. They had already given my bed away but I wouldn't have been able to afford it at that point any way.
There was a spot on the floor in an unheated room for 13 euro (which I had) so I took that. Worst decision ever, but it was all I could do. The bed I had the night before was around 19 euro and they were full anyway.
I Skyped the Master Card people to ask what the problem was.
I called MC 30 minutes later and they told me they had begun the process to get me the card in the morning.
It was about 22h30 or so at this point so I went to try to get some rest.
It was a sleepless night in the freezing cold. They had given me 5 blankets, I had my jacket on with jeans and socks, and I was still cold.
...but I made it though.
