  • Messy - no efficient helpful information to be found. Several ticket vending machines - applepay and debit card with PIN denied, without a credit card you are in trouble. Oh and speak to your people for help then be prepared for an Amsterdam hand. On arrival help from a nationalized fin from Eritria. The original fin looks at his feet and raced on like a shot reindeer.
