In Hong Kong, the next boat is still there!
The boat leaves tomorrow!
They are not late anymore!
But Passepartout hears: “The boat leaves tonight, not tomorrow”.
He runs to tell Mr. Phogg, but he meets Detective Fix.
They have a drink.
Detective Fix tells his real identity to Passepartout.
– “Your master is a thief! Help me arrest him!”
Passepartout doesn’t believe it.
He wants to leave.
So, Detective Fix gives many drinks to Passepartout.
Passepartout passes out.
The next day, the boat is gone.
Passepartout is not in his bed.
No one knows where he is.

He think: “I can arrest him back in England!”
In San Francisco, they board a train to New York.
The journey is long and dangerous.
One day, wild buffaloes cross the tracks and slow the train.
They are late again.
Phileas Phogg is not worried.
The train arrives at a bridge.
The bridge looks broken.
So, the train stops.
They are delayed, again!
They cross the bridge very fast.
Suddently, Sioux Indians attack the train!
