Destinos - Episode 3, The Beginning
Raquel travels by plane from Mexico to Sevilla, Spain, to look for Sra. Suárez. She needs to find out what she knows about Rosario, Don Fernando's first wife.
At the hotel, the receptionist informs her that Calle Pureza, the return address on the letter sent to don Fernando, is in the Triana district. Raquel takes a taxi to the address but no one is home. She learns from a neighbor that the person who lives there is at the market and will return soon.
The taxi driver takes Raquel on a brief tour to a nearby church to see the statue of the Virgen de la Esperanza. When they return to the house two children named Jaime and Miguel arrive. They tell Raquel that Teresa Suárez is their grandmother but she no longer lives there. They take Raquel to find their mother, Elena Ramirez, who is still at the market.
After meeting Elena, Raquel explains the story of don Fernando and Rosario and explains why she needs to see Sra. Suárez. Elena knows nothing of the story, but they agree to meet later in a bar so that Raquel can talk to Miguel, Elena's husband and the son of Sra. Suárez. Later on, they pick up Elena's children at don Pepe's barbershop.
