What to leave out of your trip to South America. Braniff International's 29 day tour of South America is well worth the time. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time. So we called in our tour director to see if he could do a little trimming. "Perhaps we could leave out the Gold Museum and the Salt Cathedral in Bogota"," we asked cautiously. "Could you face your passengers after having done a thing like that?" he said coldly. "Well, then, how about saving time on the Amazon? After all, Americans are used to seeing Indians." "Naked Indians?" He shot us a knowing glance. "Now, you could bypass the Inca ruins in Peru." "We could?" we asked hopefully. "Yes. But you would have to be monsters to do it. Ignoring all that culture and history. Shame on you." "But—" we stammered. "Now I would strike Argentina. But then I've been through Argentina 86 times. Your passengers would have a perfect right to strike you." At this point our patience was growing thin. "Surely, there must be something you could eliminate," we cried. "Try me." "Montevideo?" we pleaded. "I wouldn't hear or it. Such a charming seaport." "Sao Paulo?" we begged. "The fastest growing metropolis in the world? Out of tne question." "Santos?" we implored. "And miss the sight of those glorious orchids? You have no soul." "But don't you have any recommendations at all," we asked breathlessly as he rose to leave. "Yes," he said. "By all means, add two days in Rio." Note: Ever since our tour director became our former tour director, we have been working on a 17 day tour of South America. It's almost as good as our 29 day tour, only 12 days shorter. To find out what we didn't leave out, write: Farm and Home Travel Editor 20 North Carroll Street Madison, Wisconsin.
