On the second day we were put into a ditch. We spent all night in the ditch. On the third day trucks showed up and we were allowed to jump into the trucks. The trucks drove for a while and stopped in place I did not know. I saw one big, tall, Caucasian American looking man who was wearing blue jeans. The man was taking pictures of the trucks and the occupants. The man then left and I did not see him again. The trucks started up again and drove off. At night we arrived at a place I did not know. We saw lines of people. The truck we were in was then backed up into a large container and we were forced into the container.
