She traveled constantly with Wolters for four months, with occasional stops in the States for a few days. Kerman slowly began to realize that this was not the adventurous life she craved and was going tired of her new adopted drug “family”. During one of their short stays in the States, Kerman received a phone call from Wolters while with her family indicating she needed her to meet her at Chicago O’Hare Airport. Kerman then flew to Chicago where she met up with Wolters at the Congress Hotel. Wolter tersely explained that she needed her to depart the next morning, smuggling cash to drop off in Brussels.
