Given what she's been through, Endicott sounds remarkably unfazed.
"I need to take a shower, I've had people telling me what to do for five days," she's heard saying on video. "I have a question. Can I learn how to shoot a gun? Have you been to California? You should come."
Endicott is now in the care of the U.S. Embassy. It's unclear when she will return to Southern California.
