And while I'm here, is the zu necessary in this sentence? Couldn't it just be 'ich konnte nicht ihnen gelangen? With the zu I thought it meant 'I could not reach their place'.
It wasn't a particularly good one, I agree ;-) Here in Europe people become increasingly critical about capitalism and if something goes wrong, 'Capitalism' is often the answer you hear to the why question.
