The idea was put forward for one of us to enter and reccy the situation .
And to report back , to the others in due course . It was my turn to do something

The year was 2045 , . This could be disastrous for any return home . Any mail

returned to my friend's location after dark . If we could get access to a computer
the whole contact procedure could be easy .!
The rest of the team were keen to go , our supplies were exhausted , and so were we .!
We saw some amazing sights on our way to the big smoke , trains , planes and automobiles.!
The plan was to split up each day , and find cash jobs to survive , while we engaged in a nightly
surf of the net , at internet cafes.
Cash jobs proved to be a big problem , and a couple of the team , were stealing food for the rest
of us , as we lived day to day , in an old railway siding . Sleeping under a disused building
every night , and moving around in the daylight ....
