At the beginning of the passage, the man decides to take a walk in the desert after sunset. He notices the “thinning” sunlight, along with the much “cooler” air and “savory odors” from the scrub. The combination of the cooler weather and twilight surrounding create a relaxing environment. The peaceful surroundings contrasts with the violent, bloody execution of the serpent. The juxtaposition between the location and the snake’s upcoming death causes the passing of the snake to feel even more jarring and harsh.

“Quitting leads to much less happiness in life than perseverance and hope.” (Page 117) -Salva Dut In Sudan the water is the hardest thing to get, imagine you going to walk 5 miles to get a 45lb water jug then put on your head and walk another 5 mile all the way back home but the water in jug is full of insects and bacteria that can make you sick or even death after while the natural water will dry up so you and your family have to move with it and you walk again for miles they hope to find water and they won’t get killed by humans or animals.
