Main Idea: As Candide and Cacambo continue their traveling to get away from the Portugal officers who want to capture them, they find a village who doesn't use diamond and rubies as money but as regular stones on the ground. They villagers call them just 'pebbles'. They discovered that the people worship one God but never pray because he has already giving them many blessings. They also don't have prisons or court systems because of how well the village manages. Candide cannot live in this village when his lover is not there, he and Cacambo decide to leave with as many pebbles as they can so he can hopefully pay of Don Fernando for Cunégonde. They leave and soon are robbed of most of their fortune, and discover a homeless man who shares his story, and this story leaves Candide to renounce Pangloss's optimism. Candide is robbed again, but soon watches the man who stole his sheeps and fortune get beaten in a ship battle. His ship, crew, and himself all drowned. Candide thought it was justice being served. However with Martin, the homeless man, he asks Candide why it was necessary for the whole crew to go down with the man that stole his fortune.
