       Additional Information  
      Nuclear devastation is the past. The need for water is the present. Can they survive to find a future? I watch the sun coming up on my right as I walk. Weíve only got about three hours now before it gets too hot and we have to stop. Weíve learned not to leave it too long, learned not to wait until the last minute to put up our tents and hide within their dubious shelter. The sun will kill you if you let it. Better to lose daylight, lose marching time, than to get stuck in the full sun. Of course itís not much better in the middle of the night either. We have to stop and get set up before it gets too cold. The night will kill you if you let it. Zara talks about what it was like before -- how their days used to be based on being up when the sun was up and sleeping during the night when it was dark. Itís just another one of the differences between then and now. Sheís the oldest of us, she tells us about the differences, about how they used to do stuff. A lot of it is really crazy, but I guess thatís natural. I guess thatís why it happened.
