P.Fleming

“In my view, to sign on to an expedition bound for the interior of Brazil is neither laudable or extraordinary but rather the reverse. Most people of my age (twenty-four) would do it like a shot, if they had the chance … it is unpleasant to be regarded as a lunatic or a hero when you know perfectly well that you are merely going to take an exceptionally long holiday.”

— Peter Fleming, “Brazilian Adventure”, 1933
