The picture says a lot. The man and wife are dancing. There’s a discussion with the four men in the corner. They are talking about drinking. There’s dancing going on, Cha, Cha, Cha. Peg couldn’t do it. They are just walking about. It is an Italian event because of their hair and the dance figures. The men are all Brazilian. They have black hair. They are young, not baby ones, young men. There’s a police line. By the look of the boys there is something going on in the middle. The kids are in it, dancing and chatting. If we were there we might hear a baby crying, the sound of music, talking and gossiping. Sometimes hearing is easy, sometimes hard. We might hear dancing, dance music! They might be tapping with their feet. They are happy. They are dancing because it’s a dancing function. The little kids watching are thinking and they are very serious for little boys. They are thinking they might get into trouble. We don’t know what they’ve been up to. We think they are OK because other people are there. If we were there we would watch them dancing with each other. They are thinking of dancing with the man and lady and then running about. They are leaning on a piece of wood. I think that they are dancing cause they’re happy. Nothing much is happening now so they’ll go home and do what they have to do then they will come back and do it all again.
