Help for friend stuck in Erlenbach

Hello everybody!

A polish friend (who as posted here in the past but is now offline) is stuck at the Erlenbach train station. I won't be back in Zurich until the middle of the night (or I would help her myself) therefore:
Is there a kind soul in the area who could provide her with a place to warm up in this cold weather, or even a couch for the night?

She would be most grateful!

Thierry

Re: Help for friend stuck in Erlenbach

There are trains leaving to the Zurich HB every 15 minutes from the Erlenbach station.

1. Where does she need to go? Is she lost?
2. Is she waiting for you to get back?

Cant offer a place but am able to hop down there and help her in the right direction. I am in Küsnacht, one station away only. PM me if you need help.

I did ask her, but she has not answered this question yet.
Part of answering what I think might be the reason would also have meant explaining her personal life to the general public, and I am not sure if that would have pleased her...

Fair point. But pardon me for being straight: people will be more inclined to help if they know why a fully functioning adult is unable to get herself from Erlenbach to the centre of Zürich/back home. Or how she ended up there in the first place.

Alternatively, she might be directed to more helpful channels, like women's shelters if she's in trouble.

Just saying. I hope it works out for her soon!

I could offer a place for the night. But will go to the International comedy later. Can't drive, so no transport possible.
