The setting is a Mexican coastal village called La Paz, probably on the Baja Peninsula. The time is not mentioned although many feel it looks like the late 18th ot early 19th century.

It is a quiet rural village. Much of the description incorporated the natural elements. The sun, bids, dogs, the sea......It is a small village and very poor. Still, friends and neighbours are an integral part of the social make-up.
