|The way down from the hill was fortunately uneventful, yet the enemy patrol at the base has shifted and partially blocks the route we used in our way in.|

|Planting a satchel charge with a remote detonator.|

|The eerie dance of lights and shadows, part searchlights, part the fire after the explosion. We are moving out towards our vehicle.|
