The main road through the village leads to the shaman's house (cursor at the end of the street). Upon stepping onto the terrace Nicole meets Ines who makes the decisions about madame's visits and won't let the agent through. Luckily, the heat is overwhelming and Nicole hopes that the broken fan behind Ines will produce an opportunity to get in without waiting.
She needs to figure out why isn't it working (zoom in). It seems to be broken, as turning the switch does nothing. Nicole takes off the lid of the device and finds out that the brushes are completely used up, so she removes them. Leaving the veranda Nicole picks up a pillow.
She meets Manuel again, this time disassembling an engine and agrees to give Nicole the engine brushes as a present. She also notices quite an impressive staff standing next to the wall. It could be of some use... Miss agent heads back to the shaman's house and tries replacing the brushes, by they prove to wide. She goes back to talk to Manuel about her problem. She asks him about the belt, but he's not willing to give it to her. He is also reluctant to borrow her the staff, but finally agrees when she promises to bring him a guanabana fruit.
