A short chapter, banged it all out after dinner.

And here's your teaser for the week:

"Christoph turned from the counter and made one more mental note that he’d never forget. He would never fully understand it, but it would forever be a part of his own outlook after that day. Americans were so proud of the idea of their country – not the fatherland or race or language, but the idea, the “way of life” as they always liked to say – that they were almost arrogant and vain before this idealized monument to courage and self-sacrifice. Their pride was not the smugness of feeling superior, but the zealousness of knowing they were right. And Christoph now knew how exhilarating and emboldening that rightness could feel."
