While resting, Beah recalls his visit (with Junior) to Kabati. He recalls his grandfather’s lore about local leaves and bark which could be used for various medicinal purposes. Among them is a special medicine that improves the brain’s ability to recall information; Beah remembers his grandfather giving this to him and claims it has given him a photographic memory to this day.
