Jack McConnell follows an old lady through the winding streets of Lisbon, as she carries a large bundle on her head, wrapped in a woolen shawl. When she gets to the top of the hill, she plunks down on an iron bench in front of a Cathedral, puts her packages on the seat beside her, and gives herself a time-out from her labors.
She chews on a wad of tobacco, and periodically spats into the street. A few minutes later, she surprises Jack by stepping onto a bus, leaving the bench empty for the next passerby.
