I am 24 years old and I have recently graduated from Leeds University.
Yours faithfully, Sally Barnes.

Dear Sirs, I am writing in response to your advertisement in yesterday’s edition of ‘The Guardian’.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Three months ago I flew to Myanmar (Burma) to be with my boyfriend, Johan. He worked for an international bank and he was helping to set up an 5 Asian branch of the bank in Rangoon.
Johan wanted to go for the weekend to the beautiful old city of Mandalay. I was very excited. I had a feeling that he would ask me to marry him and I 10 knew that I would say yes. I loved him very much. We had the last two seats on the flight to Mandalay and on Friday afternoon we set out for the airport in a taxi. We were the very last 15 passengers to check in, but we made it with only five minutes to spare.
Our seats were near the back of the small plane and I was next to the window. There were about 25 other 20 passengers. The sky looked very black as we took off, and throughout the flight, we kept our seatbelts fastened. Twenty minutes later we flew into a terrible storm. The plane 25 was rolling and shuddering in the violent turbulence. We were both very scared.
I can’t remember anything after until I opened my eyes. I didn’t know where 30 I was. Slowly I realized that the plane had crashed. I was in terrible pain and I couldn’t move. I called Johan but he didn’t reply. It was dark but I knew that he wasn’t in his seat. I heard groans and I worked out that six other people were still alive. When daylight came, I could see all the bodies around me in the wreckage. Johan was on the other side of the aisle, but I knew he 40 was dead.
After a day or two the other voices stopped and I was alone. But the rescuers didn’t come. ‘They must be on their way’, I told myself. I 45 didn’t know that we were in a swamp in the middle of a jungle and that the helicopter couldn’t fly in the heavy rain. Outside the window the floodwater was creeping slowly up 50 the side of the fuselage.
But that water saved my life. I knew that dehydration was a great danger.
I tore a piece of cloth from my clothes and I pushed it through the broken 55 window into water. Then I pulled the soggy cloth back in and squeezed the dirty water into my mouth. Later I found a piece of metal and I used it to scoop up water. At night 60 the mosquitoes came. I was terribly hungry. Then I heard voices. I pushed my hand out of the window and amazingly someone grabbed it.
The rescue team arrived nine days 65 after the crash. They took me to a clinic in Rangoon and from there to a hospital to Singapore. I had a collapsed lung, a fractured jaw, my left leg, and all the toes on my left 70 foot were broken.
