Hi. Does the underlined ところ refer back to the 場所 in red? If not, what is the function of the underlined ところ?
Thank you.

    This ところ does not refer back to anything in the text. Often used in constructions like ほしいところ and たいところ, this menas that the speaker feels a desire or a need that arise from the situation at hand. In paedagogical Japanese classes, this ところ is annotated as 局面 or 状況.
