At the Café: The American notices a scar similar to a rope burn on Changez’s forearm. Sensing the American’s suspicion, Changez explains he got the scar by spilling molten wax on himself as a child during one of Lahore’s frequent winter blackouts. Soon after the trip to Greece, Erica invited Changez to her parents’ penthouse apartment for dinner. He felt at home in her childhood room.
Erica’s father asked Changez whether he drank before serving him wine; he was aware that, according to religious law, Muslims are not supposed to drink alcohol. Changez replied yes. The American seems confused. Changez explains that, although he does have a traditional looking beard, he drinks alcohol. (He also mentions, in passing, that he was beardless for most of his time in the United States. The American asserts that drinking is a sin according to Islam. Changez affirms this, but adds, “so, for that matter, is coveting thy neigh bough's wife” (54). The American smiles, which Changez takes as a sign that they understand one another. A way of seeing the world based on fanatic adherence to enthusiasm for a set of beliefs sometimes religious.
