“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
