1. Describe the setting of the first chapter
The first chapter is set in Mary and Colin's hotel room in Venice. It is a small room with two beds and a balcony.
2. What does Mary tell Colin she dreams about during their daily naps?
First, Mary dreams that her children are in her bed with her; then that they are in danger. Later she dreams that her ex-husband is giving her excruciatingly dull and lengthy directions on using a camera.
3. Describe Colin and Mary's nightly ritual (in the hotel room) before leaving for dinner
Each night after waking from a nap, Mary performs her yoga routine on the rug while Colin rolls a marijuana joint and begins smoking it on the balcony. Usually Mary joins him after finishing her yoga. Then they silently dress for dinner.
