My name is Yasmine Kergoat, I'm originally from Egypt but I'm also half French. I will be doing a Masters program at the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) in Amsterdam and looking to rent a one bedroom flat from the 1st of May till the end of August 2013. My stay can potentially be longer than expected. The reason why I chose airbnb to search for a flat is that it is a trusted source and I have previously used it to find accommodation for a short stay last October 2012. The tenants are usually very helpful and the standard of the flats is exactly what I'm looking for. Thank you and I hope I will hear from you soon!
