I know that the word ‘recovery’ means the act or process of recovering, esp from sickness, a shock, or a setback; recuperation.
But what does it mean in this context?
For example, on what should have been a twelve-hour, cross-country drive to the airport in Mongolia, our jeep got stuck in a bog. Forced to camp overnight, we awoke to find a small party of local nomads on horseback, complete strangers, organising our recovery. We were eventually delayed by twenty-four hours, but it was the most memorable day of the trip.
Thanks in advance!
