You wake up to another day in Chasmton. Nothing much happens in Chasmtown, so you often
sleep until 11:30am. You look out of the window and see the fruit trees, houses, railroad terminal, and store that make up Chasmton. And, last but not least, the Chasm. The Chasm, via a water pipe coming from it, supplies the town's water and electricity. It basically keeps the town alive.

Anyways, you go to the bathroom to freshen up. You turn on the tap to full...but nothing comes out. You decide to cut the sink, make a mental note to call the local plumber, and see what's on the tube. You press the On button on the remote, and mnothing happens. This is serious. The finals are on today and and you just can't miss them. You decide to head into town to get some help.

As you go into town, you see a group of people
gathered around.
"What's going on?" you say.
"Something went wrong with the water system in the Chasm" someone says.
"So what are we gonna do about it."
"Oh we're not gonna do anything about it.
You are."
Oh hell. The Chasm is a dangerous place and people have gotten seriously injured there. But that's nothing compared to what they will do to you if you don't fix the water system before the finals start. Hurredly you rush onto the Chasm

Bridge
This is the bridge leading to the Chasm. You can see the town in the distance. The bridge continues to the west, back into town and east
deeper into the Chasm.

please input your commands in this form: >command

>N
Trail, near Western aqueduct
The trail is supposed to continue on, but apperently this aqueduct was broken over the night. On the other side of the break, you can see the water falling straight down. The trail continues to the south, and you can also get into the aqueduct.
