Part 1 Chapter 18 Summary

Nearly a year later, Pi discovered Islam. He was out one day exploring his town and happened upon the Muslim quarter of town. He was drawn to a mosque and had a peek inside. He saw a large open room, the sanctuary, with long straw mats covering the floor. He continued on his tour of the Muslim quarter and happened upon a very small shop that was selling small flat breads. After gaining the attention of the shopkeeper, they began to talk. While there, Pi was able to witness the man saying his prayers. Watching this expression, Pi thought of Islam as little more than "hot-weather yoga for the Bedouins."
