Chapter 62

Why Hazel Wasn't Scared

  • The San Lorenzans themselves are in terrible shape. They're malnourished with teeth missing. The women's breasts are bare, and the men's loincloths don't do much to conceal much.
  • The dogs don't even bark for all their misery.
  • Hazel remarks how she's glad it's a Christian country or she might be scared.
  • John spies a xylophone with the name "Mona" on it.
