The next day, Griffin rides a crowded bus to the Negro YMCA, where he hopes he will be able to find a room.
On the bus, he starts to offer the seat next to him to a white woman.
The doctor makes him promise to contact him if anything else should go wrong.
The medical procedure Griffin is undergoing is neither tested nor safe and he experiences painful side effects to the ultraviolet light and to the medication.
After four days, he has bouts of intense nausea and acute anxiety.
Griffin checks into the cramped and dingy Sunset Hotel, located in the black part of New Orleans.
Everywhere, whites seem to look at him with suspicion and hostility.
