WHY PATAGONIA?—GOOD-BYE—THE START—DIRTY WEATHER—LISBON—THE ISLAND OF PALMA—PERNAMBUCO.
"Patagonia! who could ever contemplate going to this type of place?" "Why, you'll be eaten up by means of cannibals!" "What in the world makes you opt such an outlandish a part of the area to move to?" "What may be the attraction?" "Why, it's millions of miles away, and not anyone has ever been there sooner than, other than Captain Musters, and one or different adventurous madmen!"
These, and comparable questions and exclamations I heard from the lips of my neighbors and associates, 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 was once the charm in going to an outlandish position such a lot of miles away? the reply to the query was once contained in its personal phrases. accurately since it used to be 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'd be as a ways faraway from them as attainable. a lot of my readers have without doubt felt the dissatisfaction with oneself, and everyone else, that comes over one from time to time in the middle of the pleasures of existence; while one wearies of the shallow artificiality of contemporary life; whilst what used to be pleasure has develop into so now not, and a longing grows up inside of one to flavor a extra energetic emotion than that afforded by way of the monotonous around of society's so-called "pleasures."
