So, I don’t know how many of you know the story behind this picture, but I thought I’d share it because it’s so funny.
So apparently Patrick ( Darry ) was often placed at the back of the group for photo shoots and such, because he was so tall. Eventually, he got really sick of trying to look over everyone else, and started complaining about it. The photographer wouldn’t put him in the front, and Patrick started to get angry. So Emilio spotted some bricks off to the side of the road, put them in a pile, and told Patrick to stand on them. It worked, and the bricks can still be seen in this photo.
The heroine, Maria is a skilled herbalist.
She saved up money in order to get married with her master, but he ended
up using the money to marry another woman, dumping the heroine.
He went as far as saying: “you can buy a man with the money you earn
from your skill.”
This helped Maria decide what to do next.
“OK. If one can get a man with money, I will buy one and get married!”
Five men, who have fallen quite low, are available to her.
