As I remember it, Joni was trying to reach the water in the fountain, Hazel was attempting to enable him to do so while preventing him from actually falling in, the officious looking police woman (not pictured) was blowing her whistle and telling us off, a bunch of Peruvians were taking pictures on their mobile phones, and Martin was trying to look like he didn’t know us. The next bit not pictured was where Joni went lay on his tummy in the pool of filthy water which was overflowing across the path.
