Day 6: Supplies are dwindling, and so is morale. The rescuers say it'll be at least another day until they can set us free, and probably closer to three -- not much comfort. We were airlifted in a supply of DVDs yesterday afternoon: Ben-Hur, Titanic, and Diamonds are Forever. I had vowed never to watch Titanic, but at this point my defenses are so weakened that resistance may be futile. And Ben-Hur is four hours long -- far too long for my current stamina. Not the choicest selections. Meanwhile, I can only sit here in these ever-unchanging surroundings and dream of returning to civilization.
