Help! College daughter's 1st day in Nerja, Spain/converter broke!!

Jump to last reply

Today (just a few hours ago), my college daughter arrived in Spain and met the host family she will be staying with for 7 weeks. The host family seems nice, a sweet single mom with a grown son and daughter, however my daughter is having a terrible time communicating due to the language barrier. My daughter was getting ready for her first night's sleep there just now and plugs in her cell phone to charge....

...and one of the prongs breaks off of her converter and is now stuck in the outlet!! She needs this converter in order to charge her cell phone and to use her laptop to do her college work!! She doesn't know enough Spanish to be able to explain this to the mom:( And also, she doesn't want to start off the stay with a problem....

Does anyone know where in Nerja, Spain my daughter could buy a converter? And I guess my daughter will have to figure out to communicate this to the mom. I am thinking my daughter should pay to have the prong removed if the owner cannot do it.
