Loss of contact
Not being able to get in touch with anyone was also a problem at the airport. Both my email accounts had been blocked because of suspicious activity (I,.e. I was sending emails from countries other than the US). In addition skype wouldn’t work because my outlook email account wouldn’t work. Also my phone wouldn’t work. I spent I don’t know how much money on pay phones.
If nothing else, the experience taught me the value of patience. Not something that comes easy for me. My father was very similar to me in that respect. But I think while he was enduring his difficulties, he also had to learn to be patient in order to survive. Of course I have not had to endure anything as difficult as he. But problems do each patience.
