skywardprodigal: Beautiful seated woman, laughing, in Vlisco. (Default)


MR. MACNEIL: Did it ever occur to you that it was a slightly unusual occupation for a delicately built lady to be going into the jungles of the Amazon, often either unaccompanied or very little accompanied, among the Indian tribes and the wild fauna?

MRS. MEE: Well, I don't know, I'm not really so delicate perhaps as I look, if I do look delicate. But I have a great deal of resistance.

MR. MACNEIL: I've read about some of the things that you've gone through with insects and snakes and the Indian tribes and some white people.

MRS. MEE: Yes. Well, the Indian tribes, I have no fear of the Indians, in fact, I've found them lovable, hospitable, friendly people. I have had some pretty horrid adventures with white adventurers, the garaimpeiros, the gold diggers.
