Vespasiano and Pyxaanthal find one another at the bistro near the ship, the same bistro that was mentioned the day before. It is another warm, fine day, quite comfortable. The bread is fresh, a mere 4 c.p. a loaf, and palinka, a sort of distilled brandy, available at 2 s.p. a glass. A nice breakfast mackerel is only 10 s.p.
The party has only just heard; Telo made an attempt to kill Hafsah and Lateef, from the boat, and failed. He managed to wound Lateef before being bludgeoned to death by the master of the house where Lateef was staying, and the master's two servants. Pyxaanthal might, but Vespasiano probably doesn't, know why it happened.
