WHY PATAGONIA?—GOOD-BYE—THE START—DIRTY WEATHER—LISBON—THE ISLAND OF PALMA—PERNAMBUCO.
"Patagonia! who may ever contemplate going to the sort of place?" "Why, you'll be eaten up by way of cannibals!" "What on the earth makes you decide such an outlandish a part of the realm to head to?" "What might be the attraction?" "Why, it truly is millions of miles away, and not anyone has ever been there prior to, other than Captain Musters, and one or different adventurous madmen!"
These, and related questions and exclamations I heard from the lips of my pals and friends, while I advised them of my meant journey to Patagonia, the land of the Giants, the land of the fabled Golden urban of Manoa. What used to be the allure in going to an outlandish position such a lot of miles away? the reply to the query used to be contained in its personal phrases. accurately since it was once an outlandish position and up to now away, I selected it. Palled for the instant with civilisation and its atmosphere, i wished to flee someplace, the place i would be as a ways faraway from them as attainable. lots of my readers have no doubt felt the dissatisfaction with oneself, and everyone else, that comes over one from time to time in the middle of the pleasures of lifestyles; while one wearies of the shallow artificiality of contemporary life; whilst what used to be pleasure has turn into so now not, and a longing grows up inside of one to flavor a extra lively emotion than that afforded by way of the monotonous around of society's so-called "pleasures."
