I’ve been trying to imagine what sort of person our narrator, the author, is. We hardly know anything about him and he only tells us what other people have said or done. Yet he seems well liked and respected by most of the people he runs across – which says as much (even more) about their hospitality than his charm.

I liked the bit about the rough boat ride and the old man asking him when he’s getting married.
