All the travlers had nothing valuable to trade nor did they have any money.
As a result, they had to beg for food.
Can you please give us food!
Except Uncle, fishermen gave Uncle food without asking. Due to Uncle having a gun, Salva did not know if they were afraid of Uncle. Or if they thought Uncle was the leader of the group.
Uncle shared his food with Salva, a piece of sugar cane.
The sugar cane soothed the sharpest edge of Salva's hunger .
This is so good! I have been wanting this for so long.
Flashback .... at home.
Back at home , before Salva got separated, while sucking on the sugar cane it reminded him of when his father would come home , on his bike, and every once and a while with mangoes . Salva loved the slices of mango, but his favorite part is the seed . Before Salva's dad could sto, Salva would run to grab the mangos.
