They camp at the river. The man hopes the sound of the water will cheer up the boy after seeing the  cooking baby carcass. The boy asks where the baby came from but his father doesn't answer. They  continue to head south and to the coast without any knowledge of what they'll find when they get  there. People's belongings are scattered by the road and the man recalls how the boy used to pick  things up and carry them with him. The boy doesn't do that anymore. They sleep deeper than before, waking up in the middle of the road, and the man knows that they  are in desperate need of food. They haven't eaten in two days. The boy spots a house across the  field and they make their way to it. Crossing the field, they find arrowheads and a coin with Spanish  writing on it.
