Elevator Hijinks

My partner and I got trapped in an elevator at a Dutch train station. A glass one stopped halfway between two levels, leaving us with a rather tense hour as four fire fighters, two police officers and three engineers tried to free us. The thing was 85 feet up and kept shaking, with the lights flickering. They were eventually able to slowly lower it to the bottom and get the doors open, but it was rather traumatic. We missed our flight home as well, though the airline was kind enough to reschedule us on another flight for free. Glad to be home!
