Notice: I am a team leader for the Linguistics Olympiad. I would like to rent a
cheap 2-room appartment with cooking facilities in Amsterdam during the
first week of August or from the 13th till the 20th of August. We are 5
people and we'll spend most of the time in town. 2 rooms in a larger
inhabited flat with access to kitchen would also be ok.
