The first 'official' day in Korea, beginning with a "very interesting boys school" - however, Carl and Lydia slip off unnoticed and go on a tour of the shops and houses of the city of Seoul instead...

The afternoon brings further contact with the school in the form of graduation exercises, followed by tea with the International Friendly Relations Association - with Carl noting that all is not well for the Korean people, who are "still very bitter against their oppressors", the Japanese. Still, he "had a very interesting time with all those high mucky-mucks."
