AND POINTS SOUTH

A warm, disjointed, itinerant pot-pourri of facts and impressions of Mexico and points south written by two seasoned, determined travelers. They visit the Mexican cities of Guadalajara, Uruapan and the Paricutin volcano, Patzcuaro, Guadalupe, Mexico City, Veracruz, and then on down through Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, Peru, Belivia, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Brazil, and finally Trinidad. Here are anecdotes, personalities, snatches of history, revolutions, cathedrals, religious festivals, travel conditions, hotels, plumbing, politics, scenery, morals, sex, architecture night life, tourism, weather, bananas, railroads, and many other topics. The culture and the life, with the inroads of Hollywood, Broadway and U.S. comic strips, of our Southern neighbors revealed here in slangy, superficial portraiture.
