The story then shifts to Europe, notably Paris and Amsterdam. She meets several colourful characters along the way; a hotel worker who is raising a child as a single parent - a result of one of her many one-night stands, three hostelites with whom she shares an initially cold, but later on warm relationship, a cantankerous Italian restaurant owner who challenges her for a kiss, indifferent relatives, and an Indian Muslim woman working as a prostitute in Amsterdam's red light area (a bit far fetched). She even wins a cooking contest when she regales Europeans with delicate taste buds with gol goppas!
Having said that, it is only natural that the women in the audience, having identified with the main protagonist's plight, should react like that. By the end, they would want the wronged woman to emerge triumphant, to treat the fiancé as he deserves to be, for him to be thrashed by her three friends when he comes looking for her, and to finally throw the engagement ring in his face rather than hand it over to him. She does, in the end, walk away from him, liberated, independent, and joyous.
