This section of the book begins with the exile of Hasan because he defended his brother in law and asked for a pardon. He is exiled for two years in which he travels to Egypt. As he was making his way down to Egypt, he underwent many mishaps like storms and fires. But he made his way down there and when he went to Egypt he served his time as a diplomat. Hasan eventually finds his way to Rome. While in Rome, the Pope christened him with the name Leo Africanus.
So one thing that I found interesting is that in those days executions and/or exiles were fairly common. It probably happened couple times a weeks. But in our society now, executions or even exiles need lots of reason for them to undergo these kinds of things. How has society evolved so that it is unacceptable for people to go through these things.
