The writer resolves the tensions between the two aspects of his own account by projecting the spirit of "scientific" enquiry onto his companions. "They", he claims, were determined "to examine the crater in a thorough truly German manner". He did not feel the need to enter the crater; he "seated [himself] comfortably" and "contemplated the rich colours in this mighty volcano" ]

He says that his account of Syria, which has now been "so often described", must go beyond both physical and social geography and "introduce physical observations of every kind". So he concentrates on the weather and how he and his companions manage to survive their journey in the heat by being active in the morning and resting in the hottest hours. The charms which compensate for the discomfort are making a camp at night, either preparing simple food or receiving hospitality "from a numerous tribe of friendly Arabs" and feeling independent of European society]
