On the streets of downtown Sao Paulo in the early 80's. In the original photograph, in this busy business district, people intermingled, probably around lunchtime, going about their day.Via Photoshop this daytime scene has become night, with a neon-like glow and a chalky poster art feel. An interesting urban digital artwork.

Shortly after the introduction of the chapter, is the part of the book known as "Raftsman's Passage". This was initially omitted from the book for marketing reasons, and added years after its release. It is the narrative of 13 men on a raft telling stories and conversing.
