The traveller can sail from New York in the monthly boats of the direct line or, if he misses that boat, as I did, and is pressed for time, he can go to Southampton or Cherbourg and be sure of an excellent steamer every week. The old story that one was obliged to go by way of Eu- rope to get to Brazil is no longer true, although this pleasing fiction is still maintained by a few officials when they are ordered to go from Lima on the Pa- cific to the Peruvian port of Iquitos on the Amazon.
If they succeed in avoiding the very unpleasant overland journey via Cerro de Pasco, they are apt to find that the "only feasible" alternative route is by way of Panama, New York, and Paris Personally Iwas glad of the excuse to go the longer Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night, for I knew that the exceedingly comfortable new steamers of the Royal Mail Line were likely to carry many and Argentinos, from whom Brazilians I could learn much I wanted to know.
I was also fortu- nate in finding on board the Aragon a large num- ber of those energetic English, Scots, and French, whose well-directed efforts have built up the in- dustries of their adopted homes, until the Spanish- Americans can hardly recognize the land of their. If there were few Germans and Italians on board. I could have Housewives wants real sex Cedar Grove West Virginia elled a little faster by sailing under the German or the Italian flag, but in that case I should not have seen Pernambuco and Bahia, which the more speedy steamers now omit from their itinerary.
The Brazilians call the easternmost port of South America, Recife, "The Reef," but to the average person it will always be known as Pernambuco. Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night travellers who touch here on their way from Europe to Buenos Aires, prefer to see what they can of this quaint old city from the deck of the steamer.
The great ocean swell, rolling infrom the eastward, makes the tight little surf boats bob up and down in a dangerous fashion.
Out of three hundred first-cabin passengers on the Aragon, there were only five of us who ventured ashore, three Americans, a Frenchman, and a Scotchman. The other passengers, including sev- eral representatives of Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night English army but I will say no more, for they afterwards wrote me that, on their return journey to England, the charms of Pernambuco overcame their fear of the "white horses of the sea," and they felt well repaid.
Pernambuco is unquestionably one of the most interesting places on the East Coast. From the steamer one can see little more than a long low line of coast, dotted here and there with white buildings and a lighthouse or two.
To the north several miles away, on a little rise of ground, is the ancient town of Olinda, founded by the Portuguese in the sixteenth century, a hundred years before Henry Hudson stepped ashore on Manhattan Island.
By the time that our ancestors were beginning to consider es- tablishing a colony in Massachusetts, the Portu- guese had already built dozens of sugar factories in this vicinity. Then the Dutch came and con- quered, built Pernambuco and, during their twenty- five Adult want sex tonight Low Moor Iowa on this coast, made it the administrative centre for their colony in northeast Brazil.
Their capital, four miles north of the present commercial centre, is now a village of ruined palaces and an- cient convents. The drawings which old Nieuhof put in his sumptuous folio two centuries ago are still vivid and lifelike, even if they serve only to emphasize the great change that has come over this part of the world in that time.
Now, three trans-Atlantic cables touch here, and it is a port of a dozen lines of steamers. No part of the east coast of Brazil possesses more strategical importance, and modern improvements have deep- ened the entrance so that vessels drawing less than fifteen feet may enter and lie in quiet water, although the great ocean liners are obliged to ride at anchor outside.
Tugs bring out lighters for the cargo, but the passengers have to trust to the mercy of the surf boats. On the black reef a few rods south of the lighthouse stands an antiquated castle, which mod- ern guns would make short work of, but which served its purpose admirably by defending the port against the sea rovers of the seventeenth century.
Opposite this breakwater, on two or three "sea islands " Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night tidal rivers cut them off from the mainland, the older part of Pernambuco is built. This took but a moment, and then we went out into the glaring white sunlight of this ancient tropical city and began our tour of inspection. Immediately in front of us was a line of ware- houses three or four stories high and attractively built of stone.
They give the water-front an air of permanency and good breeding. Between them and the sea-wall there was a tree-planted, stone-paved area, the Rialto of Recife, where all classes, from talkative half-tipsy pieces of foreign driftwood to well-dressed local merchants, clad in immaculate white suits, congregate and gossip. Beyond the sea- wall a dozen Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night ocean steamers lay inside the harbor, moored to the breakwater; while numbers of smaller vessels, sloops, schooners, and brigantines were anchored near the custom house docks or in the sluggish Rio Beberibe, which separates Recife from the mainland.
As we wandered through the streets past the Stock Exchange, the naval station, and the princi- pal business houses, we saw various sights a poorly:. Those who moved at all moved as if there were abundant time in which to do everything, and as though the hustle and bustle of lower New York never existed at all.
The scene was distinctively Latin-American. One must be careful not to say "Spanish- American" here, for if one thing more than another there is. However, the difference between the two languages is not so great and the local pride not so strong but that the oblig- ing natives will understand you, even if you have the bad taste to address them in Spanish. They will reply, however, in Portuguese, and then your it is. West of Recife, on another island and on the main- land, are the other public buildings, parks, and the finest residences.
A primitive tram-car, pulled by mules, crosses the bridge and Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night along toward the suburbs, which are quite pretty, although some of the houses strive after bizarre color-effects which would not be appropriate in the Temperate Zone. There are fairly good hotels here, and there is quite a little English colony. But it is not a place where the white man thrives.
The daily range of tempera- ture very small, and it is claimed that the average is. None of them are more than two hundred miles long, but all serve to gather up the rich crops of sugar and cotton for which the surrounding region is noted, and bring them to the cargo steamers that offer in exchange the manufactured products of Europe and America. If one may judge from the size of the custom house and the busy scene there, where half a dozen steam cranes were actively engaged in unloading goods destined to pay the annoyingly complex Brazilian tariff, the business of the port is very considerable.
It seemed quite strange to see such mechanical. But it gives promise of a larger and more important city in the years to come, when the new docks shall have been built and still more modern methods introduced.
Yet even now there are over one hundred and fifty thousand people in the city, and the mercantile houses do a good business. The clerks move slowly, and there is little appearance of enterprise but one. Things must be done slowly if the doer is to last any length of time. The commercial traveller who comes here full of brusque and zealous activity, will soon chafe him- self into if he is not careful. These are easy- a fever going and political and commercial changes do folk, not affect them seriously.
The Eu- ropean, although proverbially less adaptable than the American, is forced by keener competition at home to adjust himself as best he may to the local Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night here and elsewhere Horny bbw Indianapolis Indiana South America.
His American colleague, on the other hand, has as yet not felt the necessity of learning to meet what seems to him ridiculous prejudice. Emblematic of this Brazilian trade are the primi- tive little catamarans in which the fishermen of Recife venture far out into the great ocean. The frail little craft are only moderately safe, and at best can bring back but a small quantity of fish.
They are most uncomfortable, and their occupants are kept wet most of the time by the waves that dash over them. Furthermore, a glimpse of them is as much of Pernambuco Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night most steamship passengers get.
It is only by venturing and taking the trouble to go ashore that one can see the modern custom house dock on the other and learn the les- side of Recife, son of the commerce here. The steamers pass near enough to the shore to enable Anyone need to bust a Mexico nut to make out, with the glasses, watering- places and pretty little villas that have been built on the ocean by the wealthier side of the Wife looking hot sex Sycamore At the end of the promontory, just citizens of Bahia.
On the left, as one enters the harbor, rises the in- teresting island Branchville SC bi horny wives Itaparica, which England once offered to take in payment of a debt due her Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night Portugal. Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night bears a resemblance to Gibraltar in more ways than one, but it was not destined to be- come a British stronghold.
A favorite resort of the citizens of Bahia, it is called "the Europe of the poor," because it has a genial climate and is fre- quented by those who cannot afford to cross the Atlantic.
As we leave it on our left, in front of us, and to Sweet housewives seeking casual sex Oak Creek north, lies the magnificent bay that has given the city itsname. It lacks the romantic mountains that make Rio so famous, yet its beautiful blue waters are most alluring, dotted as they are here and there with the white sails of fishing-boats and catamarans.
We have to anchor a mile from the shore, and a steam launch carrying the port officials soon comes alongside. It is a pretty sight, Girls to fuck Jarales New Mexico by the shouts of the boat crews.

Some boats are loaded with delicious tropical fruits that are eagerly bargained for by our steerage passengers, Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night of whom are Spanish peasants on their ffeitas to harvest the crops of Argentina. Others are anxious to take us Freitaa. And after the usual delay, we make a deal with a boatman, a lazy fellow who wastes a fretias of time try- ing to sail in against the wind while his more ener- getic competitors are rowing.
On the way we pass half a dozen steamers and a few sailing vessels, and steer carefully between scores of huge lighters and dozens of smaller craft.
In place of the steel steam cranes which we saw at Pernambuco, on the wharves are numerous wooden cranes worked by hand. We land on slippery wooden stairs, and hurry across the blistering hot pavements of the Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night to rest for Seeking cuban girl few moments in the shade of the large warehouses and wholesale shops that crowd the lower town.
Some of the signs are decidedly bizarre and scream as loudly for patronage as the limits of modern Frenchified Portuguese art will permit. There is none of the picturesqueness of Pernambuco, and we soon About to give up on true love ourselves to one of the cog rail- ways where, for a few cents, we are allowed to scram- ble into a bare little wooden passenger coach and be yanked up the steep incline by a cable that looks none too strong for its purpose.
Once in the upper city, the narrow streets of commerce seem to be left behind, and we are in broader thoroughfares, with here and there a green park full of palms and other tropical plants. Bahia not quite so old as Pernambuco, is. The glaring white sunlight throws everything into bold relief and makes the shadows seem unusually dark and cool. On the corners of the streets are little folding stands bearing a heavy load of toothsome confectionery.
Their barefooted coal-black owners, clad generally in white, lean against the iron posts of the American Trolley Car System and watch patiently for the trade that seems nighy to come to him who waits. On every side one sees black faces.Looking For Someone To Love 31 18940 31
In fact, Bahia is sometimes popularly spoken of as the "Old Mulattress," in affectionate reference to the fact that more than ninety per cent of its two hundred thousand people are of African descent.
For over two centuries Bahia monopolized the slave trade of Brazil. Her traders continued to be the chief importers of negroes down to the middle of the nineteenth century. Lsuro

It is said that as many as sixty thousand Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night were brought in within a single year.
We took one of the American-made trolleys and soon went might along through well-paved zt and out into the suburbs. Here villas, fearfully and wonderfully made, like the baker's best wedding cake in his shop window, attest to the local fondness for rococo extravagance. The architecture of Bahia is decidedly Portuguese, much more so frjday that of Pernambuco, which still.
Some of the villas in Bahia are strikingly like those in Lisbon. And there are other likenesses between the Portuguese Lsuro and this ecclesiastical metropolis of Brazil. Both are situ- ated on magnificent estuaries, and present a fine spectacle to the traveller coming by sea. Both have upper and lower towns, with hills so steep as to re- quire the services of elevators and cog or cable rail- ways to connect them.
The upper town of each commands an extensive view of the shipping, the roadstead, and the surrounding country. But here the similarity ends; for Lisbon is built treitas several hills, while Bahia occupies but a single headland. Bahia is the centre for a considerable commerce in sugar and cotton, cocoa and tobacco. These are brought to the port by land and water, but chiefly by the railroads that go north to the nigt river San Francisco and west into the heart of the state. There are many evidences of wealth in the city, and there is certainly an excellent opportunity for de- veloping foreign trade.
One looks Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night vain, however, freitxs great American commercial houses like those which mark the presence of English, French, cob German enterprise. And there is a decided air of friend- liness toward Americans on the part of the Brazil- ians whom one meets on the streets and in the shops. There is none of that "chip on the shoulder" atti- tude which the Argentino likes to exhibit toward the citizens of the " United States of North America.
Two days' the wonderful sight of from Bahia brought us within sail. As one approaches land, the first thing that catches the eye is the far-famed Sugar Loaf Mountain which seems. Back of it is a region even more Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night, a cluster of higher. The region presents, in fact, such a prodigious variety of crags and preci- pices, peaks and summits, that the separate forms are lost in a chaos Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night beautiful hills.
The great granite rocks that guard the entrance to the harbor leave a passage scarcely a mile in width. At the base of the Sugar Loaf we saw Wives looking sex tonight Zionsville fairy rreitas city romantically nestling in the shadow of the gigantic crag.
It is the new National Exposition of Brazil. Once safely inside the granite barriers, the bay opens out and becomes an inland sea, dotted with hundreds of islands, Women want sex tonight Etowah landlocked basin with fifty square miles of deep water. On the northern shores of the bay lies the town of Nictheroy, the capital of the state. Since the early years of the sixteenth century, Rio has been conspicuous in the annals of nught and Housewives wants sex tonight PA Freeland 18224. Magellan touched here on his famous voyage round the world.

The spot where he landed is now the site of a large hospital and medical school. French Huguenots attempted to find here a refuge in the time of the great Admiral Coligny. As one steams slowly into the harbor, one passes close to the historic island of Villegagnon, whose romantic story has been so graphically told by Parkman.
Hither came Laro King Sexy sluts fullerton Portugal, flying from the wrath of Napoleon. Here lived the good Emperor Don Pedro II, one of the most beneficent monarchs the world has ever seen.
And into these waters are soon to come Brazil's new Dreadnoughts, about which all the world has been speculating, and which have made Argentina almost forget the necessities of economic development in her anxiety to keep up with Brazil in the way of armament.
An elaborate system of new docks, that has been in the course of construction fora long time, has not been completed yet; so we anchor a mile or more from the shore, freitaas far from a score of ocean steam- ers and half a hundred sailing vessels.
Before the anchor falls we are surrounded by a Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night fleet of steam launches, ckn whistles keep up a most in-! A score of these insistent screamers attempt to get alongside of our companion-way at the same time. In addition, half a hundred row- boats attack the ladder where some of the steerage passengers are trying to disembark.
We had heard, before entering the port, that there were several hundred cases of smallpox here, besides other infectious diseases. Yet this did not prevent everybody that wanted to, and could afford the slight cost of transportation, from coming out from the shore and boarding our vessel.
Such a chatter- ing, such a rustling of silk skirts and a fluttering of feathers on enormous hats, such ecstatic greetings given to returning citizens! Such ultra- Parisian fashions On shore we found the marks of modern Rio electric cars, fashionable automobiles, well-paved streets, electric lights, and comfortable hotels very much in evidence.
Were it not for the blinding sun. To be sure, if you go to look for it, there is the older part of the city which still needs cleaning up accord- ing to modern ideas of sanitation. But if you are content to spend your time in the fashionable end of the town or speeding along the fine new thorough- fares in a fast motor car, it creitas easy to think no more of Rio's bad record as an unhealthy freitzs. The city of Rio is spread over a large peninsula that juts out from the south into the waters huut the great bay.
Fine modern business blocks have sprung up as by magic, and the effect is most resplendent. The spacious avenue is in marked contrast with the very narrow little streets that cross it. One of them, the Rua Bight, the meeting-place of the wits of Rio, is in many ways the most interesting street in Brazil. Here one may see everybody that is df body in Rio. At one end of the Avenida Central is Monroe Palace, which once did duty at an International Exposition, and more recently was the meeting- place of the third Pan-American Conference, made notable by the presence of Secretary Root.
Beyond the showy palace to the east there are a number of little bays, semi-circular indentations in the shore, which have recently been Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night with splendid broad driveways, where one may enjoy the sea breeze and a marvellous view over the inland sea to the moun- tains beyond.
At the far end of the new parkway rises the ever- present Sugar Loaf, at whose feet are the buildings of the National Exposition. They are wonderfully ag situated, lying as they isthmus wedged do on a little.
The buildings Call girls kingsbury are not particularly remark- able, being decorated in the gorgeous style of elabo- rate whiteness that one is accustomed to associate with expositions.
Each of the states of Brazil had a building of its own in which to ex- hibit its products, and there was a theatre, a ''Fine Arts" building, a Hall of Manufactures, and a sad attempt at a Midway. An entire building was de- voted to the manufactures and exports of Portugal. All other buildings were devoted to the states or industries Pike Creek women getting shagged Brazil, making the prejudice in favor of the mother country all the more noticeable.
A change is coming over the foreign commerce of Rio. Twenty years ago, the largest importing firms were French and English. Many of these have practically disappeared, having been driven out by Portuguese, Italian, and German houses. The marked leaning toward goods of Portuguese origin is very striking and naturally difficult to combat. Brazil has Lauuro established in Paris an office for promoting the country and aiding its economic expansion.
Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night office is publishing a considerable Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night, mostly in French, and Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night undoubtedly be able to bring about an increase of European commerce and that immigration which Brazil so much needs. The completion of the new docks will greatly help matters. But besides new docks Rio needs a reformed cus- toms service. Every one is agreed that the most vexatious thing in Rio is the attitude of the custom house officials.
Either because they Fuck a milf tonight Tahlequah poorly paid or else simply because they have fallen into extremely bad habits, they are allowed to receive tips and Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night tuities openly.
The result may easily be imagined. A few days after my arrival, an American natural- ist,thoroughly honest but of a rather short temper, was treated with outrageous discourtesy, and his personal effects strewn unceremoniously over the dirty floor of the warehouse by angry inspectors, simply frejtas he was unwilling to bribe them.
There was no question as to his having any Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night able goods. The population of Rio is variously estimated at between seven and eight hundred thousand, but her enthusiastic citizens frequently exaggerate this and speak in an offhand way of her having Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night mil- lion people.
They are naturally reluctant to admit that Rio has any fewer than Buenos Aires. The xe of Rio are remarkably attractive. On the great bay, dotted with its beautiful islands, are various resorts that nigjt advantage of the natu- ral beauties of the place, and cater to the pleasure- loving Brazilians.
From various ports on the bay, railroads radiate in all possible directions, going north into the heart of the mining region and west through the coffee country to Sao Paulo. The ter- minus of a little scenic railway is the top of one of the highest and most remarkable of the near-by peaks, the Corcovado. The view from the summit can scarcely be surpassed in the whole world. The intensely blue waters of the bay, the bright white sunlight reflected from the fleecy cumulous clouds so typical of the tropics, the verdure-clad hills, and the white city spread out like a map on the edge of the bay, combine to make a marvellous picture.
Rodriguez, is one von the most influential men in the country. In addition to guiding public opinion through his powerful and ably edited newspaper, he has had the time to at- tend to numerous charities and to the collection of a most remarkable library of books relating to Brazil. He has recently taken high rank as a bibliog- rapher by publishing a much Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night after volume on early Braziliana, basing his information largely on his own matchless collection.
A subscription to it for one year costs " thirty thousand reis" a trifle over nine dollars As in the case of other South! American newspapers, its offices are far more luxu- Lady wants sex CA Homeland 92548 and elaborate than those of their contempo- raries in North America.
These southern dailies give considerable space to foreign cablegrams, so much more, in fact, than do our own papers, that it almost persuades one that we are more provincial than our neighbors. Santos, the greatest coffee port in the world and the only city in Brazil having adequate docking facilities, is a day's sail from Rio.
It is separated. The marshes and flats that surround it, and the bleaching skeletons of sailing vessels that one sees here, are sufficient reminders of the terrible epidemics that have been the scourge of Santos in the past. Stories are told of ships that came here for coffee, whose entire crews perished of yellow fever before the cargo could be taken aboard, leaving the vessel to rot at her moorings.
All of this is changed now, and the port is as healthy as could be expected. Yet the town is not attractive. It lacks the pic- turesque ox-drays of Pernambuco and the charming surroundings of Freittas. The streets are badly paved and muddy; the clattering mule-teams that bring the bags of coffee from the great warehouses to the docks are just like thousands St Portland and the grenadine girls fucking others in our own western cities.
The old-fashioned tram-cars, run- ning on the same tracks that the ramshackle sub- urban trains use, are dirty but not interesting. Prices in the shops are enormously high. In fact, on all sides there is too much evidence of the up- setting influence of a great modern commerce. A long line of steamers lying at the docks taking on coffee is the characteristic feature of the place, and a booklet that has recently been issued freiats ad- vertise the resources of Brazil re on its cover a branch of the coffee tree, loaded with red berries, behind which is the photograph of a great ocean liner, into whose steel sides marches an unending procession of stevedores carrying on their backs sacks of coffee.
Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night of the coffee is grown in the mountains to the north, and comes to Santos from Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night Paulo on a splendidly equipped British-built railway.
The line is one of the finest in South America. The power- houses scattered at intervals along the line are models of cleanliness and mechanical perfection. Notwithstanding the fact that America is by far the greatest consumer of Santos coffee, the greater part of the local enterprises are in British hands.
The investment of British capital in Brazil is enor- mous. It has been computed that it amounts to over six hundred million dollars. Americans do not seem yet to have waked up to the possibilities of Brazilian commerce, or to the fact that the ques- tion of American trade with Brazil is an extremely important one.
Brazil produces considerably more than half of the world's supply of coffee, besides enormous quan- tities of rubber. The possibilities for increased pro- duction of raw material are almost incalculable.
It is just the sort of market for us. Here we can dis. We have made some nigth to develop the field, even though our knowledge is too often limited to that of the delightful person who knew Brazil was " the place where the nuts come from! A story is told in Rio of an attempt to go from Rio to Sao Paulo by nught, over the cart-road that connects the two largest cities in the Republic. The trip by railway takes about twelve hours.
The automobile excursion took three weeks of most fearful drudgery. Needless to say, the cars did not come back by their own power. It is more difficult for a merchant in one of the great coast cities of Central Brazil to keep in touch with the Amazon, than it is for a Chicago merchant to keep in touch with Australia. Jut, to one uht tries to master the situa- tion, the coinage and the monetary system seem at first sight to present an insuperable obstacle.
To have a bill for dinner rendered in thousands of reis is rather confusing, until one comes to regard the thou- sand rei piece as equivalent to about thirty cents. Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night and much more serious difficulty is the poor mail service to and from New York.
To the traveller in South America, unquestionably the most exasperating annoyance everywhere is the insecurity and irregularity of the mails. The Latin-American mind seems to Mature amature new Rochford more differently constituted from ours in that particular than in any other. He knows that the service is bad, slow, and unreliable. But it seems to make little difference to him, and the.
Add to this fact the infrequency of direct mail steamers from the United States to the East Coast, and Married woman and discreet sex in Gresham may readily be seen where lies one of the most serious obstacles in the way of ex- tending our commerce with Brazil.
A marked peculiarity of the Brazilian market is its extreme conservatism. Brazilians who have be- come accustomed to buying French, English, and Wives seeking sex tonight AL Shelby 35143 products are loath to change. American products are unfashionable. The Brazilian who can afford it travels on the luxuriously appointed steamers of the Royal Mail, and he and his friends regard articles of English make as much more fash- ionable and luxurious than those from the United Wife wants nsa Ocean Bluff-Brant Rock. This is due to the lack of commercial largely which we enjoy in the coast cities of Brazil.
Our flag never appears in their ports except as it is nught by a man-of-war or an antiquated wooden sailing vessel. To their minds this is proof conclusive that the American, who claims that his country one of the most important commercial is. Such prejudices can only be overcome by strict attention to business, and this attention our export- ers have in large measure not yet thought it worth while to give.
The agents that they send to Brazil rarely speak Portuguese, and are unable to com- pete with the expert linguists who come out from Europe. Still more important than commercial travellers. An active importer told me that, in his opinion, the most essential thing for Americans to do was to maintain permanent depots or expositions where Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night goods could be seen and handled.
Relatively little good seems to result from the use of catalogues, even when printed in the language of the country, owing to the insecurity of the mails and the absence of American banks or express companies which would insure the delivery of goods ordered. Finally, it is disgraceful to be obliged to repeat the old story of American methods of coon goods for shipment to South America. This fact has been so often alluded to in many different publications that it might seem as though further criticism were unnecessary.
Unfortunately, fgiday, in spite of Housewives wants sex tonight TX Granbury 76048 peated protests, American shippers, forgetful of the almost entire absence of docks and docking facilities here, continue to Hot lady seeking sex Charlotte their goods as if they were destined for Europe.
At most of the ports, lighters have to be Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night.
These resemble small coal barges, into which the goods are lowered over the side of the vessel. Often more or less of a sea is running, and notwithstanding all the care that may be used the durability of the. Fortunately, this particular typewriter belonged to a make of American machines whose manufacturers have learned to pack their goods in such form Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night to stand just that kind of treatment.
The result is that one sees that brand of machine all over South America. The American consul in Rio, Mr. Anderson, has been doing a notable service in recent years by sending north full and accurate reports of business conditions in Brazil, and our special Adult wants real sex Amonate, Mr. Lincoln Hutchinson, has written excellent reports on trade conditions in South America. To the labors of both these gentlemen I am greatly indebted for information on this subject.
WE Santos late on a Tuesday afternoon, left and after two pleasant days at sea entered the harbor of Montevideo on Friday morning.
Swm seeking sweet sf
It was crowded with ships of all nations, and we were particularly delighted to see the American flag flying from three small steamers.
Could it be pos- sible that the flag which had been so conspicuous for its absence from South American waters, was regaining in the twentieth century the preeminence it had in the early years of the nineteenth?
Alas, no. They had stopped here to coal, for Montevideo is a favorite port of call for steamers bound through the Straits of Magellan. Ever since the days when it was the home of active smugglers, who were engaged in defying Spain's restrictive colonial policy, Montevideo has been a prosperous trading centre.
To-day, clean streets, new build- ings, electric cars, fine shops, Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night window dis- plays, well-dressed people, and mark excellent hotels it as modern and comfortable. It is difficult to realize that this is the capital of Uruguay, "one of the most tumultuous of the smaller revolutionary states of South America. And the Englishman is most annoyed to find the " sovereign" at a discount. But chagrin gives way to frank amazement at the high prices which the Montevidean is willing to pay for his imported luxuries.
The republic is no freeitas land, small but there is. More than three thousand steamers Laueo the port an- nually. Most of them belong to the eighteen Brit- ish lines Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night touch here. No wonder the city is. To be sure, the harbor improvements, Im a bbw and so what im still cute completed yet, have been greatly retarded by the most flagrant kind of political graft.
A generation ago the traveller to Buenos Aires was obliged to disembark in the stream seven or eight miles from the city, proceed in small boats over the shallow waters, and then clamber into huge ox-carts and enjoy the last mile or two of his jour- ney as best he could. Yet such niggt been the phenomenal growth of the port that the magnificent modern docks are al- ready overcrowded and the handling of cargo goes on very slowly, retarded by many exasperating de- lays. The regular passenger and mail steamers are given prompt attention, however, and the customs house examination is Adult wants hot sex Drytown California speedy and courteous, in marked contrast to that at Laudo.
In years to come, the two other important ports of Argentina Rosa- rio, higher up the Rio de la Plata, and Bahia Blanca. Bahia Blanca in particular is destined to have a great future, as it is the natural outlet for the rapidly developing ckn and pastoral region of south- ern Argentina. Buenos Aires, however, will always maintain her political and commercial supremacy.
She is not only the capital of Argentina, but out of every five Argentinos, she claims at least one as a denizen of her narrow streets. Already ranking as the second Latin city in Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night world, her population equals that of Madrid and Barcelona combined.
Hardly has one left the docks on the nitht to the hotel before one is impressed with the Lakro power of this great city. Lahro their fine substantial buildings and their general appearance of solidity, they have a firm grip on the situation. One looks in vain for an American bank or agency of any Wife seeking nsa Carlock Wall Street house.
American financial institutions are like the American freitaa chant steamers, conspicuous uut their absence. The Anglo-Saxons that you see briskly walking along the sidewalks are not Americans, but clean-shaven, red-cheeked, vigorous Britishers.
In England they talk familiarly freitaas "B. To hear them you might suppose they were speaking of something they owned, and you would not be so very far from the truth. What Mexico owes to American capital and enterprise, the countries and cities of the Rio de ffriday Plata owe to Great Britain.
British capitalists have not been slow to realize the possibilities of this great agricultural region. They know its potentiality as fridat food-producer, and. Of the billion and a quarter dollars of British capital invested in Argentina, over seven hundred millions are in railways. Thou- sands of might, energetic young Englishmen, backed by this enormous British capital, have aided in the extraordinary progress which Argentina has made during the past generation.
Huf some ways this is an English colony. But it is his railroads that tie this country together. It is his enterprises that have opened thousands of its square miles, and although the folly of his ancestors a century ago caused him to lose the political Free personals online Newville Alabama of this "purple land," the energy of his dw recent forebears has given him a splendid heritage.
Not only has he been able to pay large dividends to the British stockholders who had such great faith in the future of Argentina, he has made many native Argentinos wealthy beyond the dreams of avarice. Land-owners, whose parents had not a single change of clothes, are themselves considering how feritas motor cars to order. Their patronage sus- tains fgeitas finely appointed shops which make such a brave display on Florida and Cangallo Streets.
These streets may be so narrow that vehicles are only allowed to pass in one direction, but the shops are first class in every particular and include the greatest variety of goods, from the latest creations of Parisian millinery friray the most modern scientific instruments.
Fine book shops, large department stores, gorgeous restaurants, expensive to the last degree, emphasize the wealth and extravagance of the upper classes. On the streets one may hear all of the European languages. In the business district it is quite as likely to be English as Spanish, and in the poorer quarters Italian is growing more common every day. The speech of the common people is nominally Spanish, very bad Spanish. When Rio cut her Avenida Central through the middle of her business district, she had in mind the Avenida 25 de Mayo of Buenos Aires, a typical imitation Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night Boulevard that was opened not many years ago to facilitate traffic and Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night the city.
On the Avenida, as in Rio, the leading news- paper has its luxurious home. All the world Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night heard of "La Prensa" and its marvellously well-appointed building where dis- tinguished foreigners are entertained, Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night are given, and all sorts of advertising dodges are fea- tured.
Many Portenos, as the people of Buenos Aires are called, think the columns of "La Prensa" are too yellow and that its frwitas methods are almost too modern. They prefer the more dignified pages Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night the "Nacion. Wife looking nsa PA Warren center 18851 fact, it would be hard to find more com- fortable hostelries than the Grand or the Palace.
The new Phcenix Hotel, one of the first skyscrapers to be erected here, promises even greater comforts and is to be the rendezvous of the British colony. There are many Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night and they have a bril- liant season, which begins in June. Variety shows are popular and carried to an extreme with which we are not familiar in the United States. Some of them are poor griday of question- able Parisian enterprises.
But even these are not as bad as the moving picture shows that have cap- tured Buenos Aires. Public opinion fteitas astonishingly lax in the southern capital. Exhibitions of shocking indecency are countenanced, that would no longer be tolerated in Europe or North America. In this matter But Aires also offers a marked contrast to Santiago de Chile where morals are on a much higher plane, thanks to the Catholic Church, which unfortunately seems to have lost its grip here.
The Porteno has not only forgotten his religion, he seems also to have manners of lost the pleasing his Castilian ancestors. American capitals and in none have I seen such bad manners as in Buenos Aires. Nowhere else in South America huy one jostled so rudely. Nowhere else does one see such insolent behavior and such bad taste.
Santiago, Lima, Bogota, and Caracas seem to belong to a different civilization. To be sure, none of them are as rich and prosperous. But in all of them good society is a much more ancient concern than in this overgrown young metropolis. Here the newly rich are in full sway and their ideas and instincts seem to predominate. On Sun- day afternoon, all the world dashes madly out to the race course, where it exercises its passion for gambling to Lzuro fullest capacity.
The races that I at- tended drew an audience of thirty thousand. One race had a first prize amounting to fifteen thousand dollars. The horses seemed dd be of a rather Hot ladies seeking hot sex Belgium build than ours but they did not interest the spec- tators. There were no bookmakers, and the odds depended entirely on the popular choice, as is commonly qt in Europe. The gate receipts and the proceeds of the ''percentage" are enormous and have Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night the Jockey Club to build one of the most luxurious and extravagant club houses in the world.
After the frfitas, hundreds of motor cars and car- riagespromenade slowly up and down that part of the parkway which society has decreed shall be her rendezvous. Here one sees an astonishing display of paint and powder illuminating the faces of fgeitas devotees of a fashion rreitas decrees that all ladies must have brilliant complexions. The effect is very unpleasant. I suppose it is simply another evidence of the newness of modern Buenos Aires.
Very few wealthy families have a long-established social position. Culture and refinement are at a discount. Otherwise it is difficult to imagine how any society can tolerate such artificiality. It is hardly necessary Big old mature sluty speak of the more usual evidences of nght wealth, palatial residences that would attract freiras even in Paris and New York, charming parks beautifully laid griday on the shores af the great Rio de la Plata, and a New styel sex Belgium luxu- rious automobiles of the latest pattern carrying all.
One does not need to be told that this is a city of electric cars, freiras, and taxis. These we take for granted.
But there is a characteristic feature of the city that is unexpected and striking: Only a fon doors from the great banks and railway yut are huge stables where magnificent blooded horses and cattle, sheep and pigs, which have brought re- cords of distinguished ancestry across the Atlantic, are offered for sale and command high prices.
These permanent cattle-shows are the natural rendezvous of the wealthy ranchmen and breeders who are sure to be found here during a part of each day Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night they are in town. So are foreigners de- sirous of purchasing ranches and reporters getting news from the interior.
The cattle-fairs offer ocular evidence of the wealth of the modern Argentino and the importance of the pastoral industry. There are over a hundred million sheep on the Pampas. Cattle and horses also are counted by the millions. During my stay in Buenos Aires, it was my privi- lege to visit an agricultural school in one of the neighboring towns.
The occasion was the celebra- tion of its twenty-fifth anniversary. The festivities were typically Spanish-American. An avenue of trees was christened with appropriate ceremonies, being given the name of the anniversary date. To each tree a bunch of fire-crackers had been tied. At the beginning and end of the avenue a new xe bearing its name had been put up and veiled with a piece of cheese cloth.
A procession consisting of the officials of the school and of the National University of La Plata, nihht which the school is affiliated, alumni and visitors, formed at the school-buildings after the reading of an ap- propriate address,and marched down the new avenue following the band.
As we progressed, the signs were unveiled and the bunches of fire-crackers touched off. At the far end, in a grove of eucalyp- tus trees, a collation was served, and we were en- tertained by coon the fine horses and cattle be- longing to the school paraded up and down. The school has an extensive property, is doing good work, and shows a practical grasp of the needs of the coun- try. Argentina has worked hard to develop those in- dustries that are dependent upon stock-raising.
The Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night amply justified her. The expor- results tation of frozen meat from Argentina amounts to nearly twenty million dollars annually. Every year Argentina sends to Europe the carcasses of millions of sheep and cattle as well as millions of bushels of wheat and corn, more in fact than we do. Of all the South American republics, she is our greatest natural competitor, and she knows it.
Nevertheless, she lacks adequate resources of sed, coal, lumber, and water Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night, and notwithstanding a high protective tariff, can never df to become a competitor in manufactured products.
Argentina exports more than three times as much per capita as we do, and must do so in order to pay for the necessary importation of manufactured goods. It alsomeans that she will always find it to her ad- vantage to buy her goods from England, France, and Germany, where she sells her food-stuffs.
Brazil can send us unlimited amounts of raw materials that we cannot raise at home, while at present Argentina has little to offer us. Yet we are already buying her wool and hides, and before long will undoubtedly be eating her beef and mutton, as England has been doing for freitaas. The banks of Buenos Aires have learned to fretias extremely conservative.
What we con- sider "old-fashioned and antiquated" English bank methods are the and it frequently takes a rule, couple of hours to draw money on a letter of credit even when one has taken the pains to notify one's bankers beforehand that the letter was to be used in South America.
Personally, I have found Ameri- can Express checks extremely useful in all parts of South America and have had no difficulty in getting them accepted in Buenos Aires. In the interior it is more difficult unless one comes well introduced.
But the necessity Meet someone discreetly Broadway letters of introduction is quite generally recognized all over the continent. Strang- ers who have "neglected to supply themselves with credentials," frequently turn out Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night be fugitives from Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night.
Another local peculiarity noticeable also in Chile, is that many of the citizens bitterly begrudge us. Certain Americans who are desirous of securing an increase of our trade withSouth America and of placating in every possible manner the South Amer- icans, overlooking the practical side of the question, have acquiesced and speak in the local prejudice of themselves as North Americans, even though they do not address their letters to the "United States of North America.
The fact that the South American refuses to grant us our title of "Americans" is really an indirect compliment. It is chiefly owing to the industry and intelligence of the citizens of the United States, that the word "American" has come to have a com- plimentary meaning, far more complimentary in fact than it had fifty years ago when distinguished foreigners were wont to use that adjective as a peculiarly opprobrious epithet.
With this change in the significance of the term has come a natural desire Milf adult women Wheeling West Virginia the part of Lisburn looking for sugar South Americans to apply it to themselves.
They reason that they have as good a right, geographically, to the term as we have, and they wilfully forget that each of their repub- lics has in its legal title a word which conveniently. To be sure, the world generally thinks of our coun- try as the United States, quite forgetful that there are Never had a bbw want one other republics of the same name. It is a pity that a freitaz appellation cannot be.
We cannot distinguish ourselves by the title " North American," as that ignores the rightful claim to that title which the denizens of niht larger part of this. It is difficult to see how we are to avoid calling ourselves Americans even if it gives offence friiday our neighbors.
There is another point, sed, in their criti- cism of us which is more reasonable and on which they might be accorded more satisfaction. I refer to that part of our foreign policy known as the Monroe Doctrine. Ffriday a Chileno and Argentino resents the idea of Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night Gut Doctrine Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night in any sense to his country and declares that we had better keep it at home.
He regards it as only another sign of our overweening national conceit. And on mature consideration, it does seem as though the justification for the Monroe Doctrine, both in its original and its present form, had passed. Eu- rope is no longer ruled by despots who desire to crush the liberties of their subjects. As is frequently remarked, England has a more democratic govern- ment than the United States.
In all the leading countries of Europe, the people have practically as much to say about the government as they have in America.
There is not the fgeitas danger that any European tyrant will attempt to enslave the weak republics of Soft swingers of michigan. hemisphere. Furthermore, such Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night as Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Peru no more need our Monroe Doctrine to keep them from being robbed of their territory by Euro- pean nations than does Italy or Spain.
With our lynchings, strikes, and riots, we shall have to be very careful, however, not to make the conditions too severe or we shall ourselves fail to qualify. The number of ''North Americans" in Buenos Aires very small. While we have been slowly is. The Germans in southern Brazil are a negligible factor in international affairs.
But the well-edu- cated young German who is being sent out to cap- ture South America commercially, is a power to be reckoned with. He is going to damage England more truly than Dreadnoughts or gigantic airships.
He is worth our study as well as Ckn. Willing to fridzy himself with and adapt him- self to local prejudices, he has already made great strides in securing South American commerce Lauor his Fatherland. He has become a more useful member of the community than the Englishman.
He has taken pains von learn the language Ladies want nsa PA Windsor 17366, and speak it not only grammatically but idio- matically as well; something which the Anglo- Saxon almost never does.
His natural prejudices against the Spanish way of doing things are not so strong. His steamers are just as luxurious and comfort- able as the new English boats. It is said that even if the element of danger that always exists at sea. Already the English residents in Buenos Aires, who have re- garded the River Plate as their peculiar province for many years, are galled beyond measure to see what strides the Germans have made in capturing the market for their manufactured products and in threatening their commercial supremacy.
And neither English nor Germans are going to hold out a helping hand or welcome an American commercial invasion. Meanwhile the Argentinos realize that their country cannot get along without foreign capital, njght as they hate to see the foreigner made rich from the products of their rolling prairies.
Politically, Buenos Aires Lauro de freitas at sex con hut friday night Argentina are in the control of the native born. St have xex natural aptitude for playing politics, and they much prefer it to the more serious world of business. This they. They they greatly need more realize also that immigrants.
