    MS looking over group of poor children who are watching priest and altar boy perform a little ceremony on a porch - framed by pillars covered with bare vines which makes it look like a big window. Altar boy hands incense to the priest; who shakes it around over some white sacks in front of him. The urchins watch with rapt attention.
