We left behind a lot of our food, and ate minimal rations. But we were always hungry and weak. After three weeks underground we could not go on.

Our clothing and boots became torn on the sharp rocks, and we didn't have spares. We cut our feet and got infected, and didn't have medical supplies. We barely made it out alive. We had to return home, and my uncle's foot infection never properly healed. We could never come back. The tunnels had beaten us.


So... what should I do now?
