Armed with that most necessary and important of all credentials, a vaccination certificate, and orders to make a survey of the Central American market in the interest of west coast lumber, the writer landed at Puerto Barrios, Guatemala, in early January of 1928. In only a most innocent way could I have been as happy as I was to leave the good old United Fruit steamer from New Orleans, for, while the next three months’ experiences were to be ones of interest at all times, they were also to be ones in which I experienced many kinds of travel, all bad.
