When we last saw Demetrios he had checked into the Bush Hotel, and turned in for the night after an exciting day in the big city. We now find our hero seated in the hotel restaurant reading the morning paper over a cup of coffee. Soon he is ready to hit the streets again.
Yesterday the city was a vibrant beautiful place, but Demetrios feels uneasy today. The Streets feel menacing and unwelcoming to him now. He tries his best to keep up a good attitude, but becomes increasingly paranoid as the day wears on.
Even the people, who seemed so friendly and welcoming yesterday, seem to eye him with suspicion and even hostility.
He comes across some graffiti he saw yesterday, and it seems an ill omen to him now. His thoughts turn homeward.
Back in his neighborhood, he begins to relax. Dorothy was right, although it's good to get away sometimes, there's no place like home.
