Chapter 35 Summary

Carlos, Rafael, Manuel, Tony, Louis XVI, and Ernesto witness a school of parrot fish swimming in the turquoise blue sea. Hundreds and thousands of parrot fish swimming together. It looks like a moving rainbow with splashes of tangerine, blood-red hibiscus, and sunset. It is beautiful, and can be no less than a miracle.

Carlos wonders whether this is a farewell vision of everything that is beautiful in his birthplace, and whether wrapped up in this vision is all the truth, beauty, goodness, eternity, and love, dancing with the sharks.
