I picked him up again and traveled around the entire gorge. Who knows where we ended up, Maestra. Soon, I didn’t even recognize the place. And I didn’t want to go down into the gorge again. I said, “Now where can I go? There is nothing but gorges and more gorges. ” So I stayed there. And as I waited, I couldn’t keep from crying, because I was scared. But then, two men I knew passed by. One was Francisco Bautista and the other, who is still alive, was Estebán Maya. I saw them and since I knew them, I spoke to them.

Doña Zeferina shakes her head, “How terrible . . the poor man . . ” She presses the man for more details. Her compadre used to come to Hueyapan regularly on market days. She is going to miss him. The recess bell rings at 11:30 and children pour out of their classrooms into the market area. First, they go over to the vendors selling candy and snow cones; then, to Doña Zeferina to see the toys. Fortunately, Arturo is there to help keep an eye on everyone, for some of the rowdy boys are capable of stealing.

By 5:00, they too are ready to go and Don José, Arturo, and a few other children drag the boxes home and tuck them away for another week in Doña Zeferina’s bedroom and in the storeroom off the kitchen. Before night falls, Doña Zeferina has to make a house call to an elderly couple, both of whom are ailing. Maribel pleads with her grandmother to take her along. Once she has packed her medicine kit, Doña Zeferina nods to the child and the resident anthropologist and the three of us leave for the San Andrés Barrio, walking east up Calle Morelos, away from the plaza.
