- "The day began early with the first faint flush of dawn in the eastern sky... Bor had returned as he promised to take us to the ruins... He led the way into a thick swamp, his machete quietly flipping here and there to clear the way... The Indian's sense of direction amazed me... Along an indistinctive part of the trail, Bor halted and told us to wait while he looked for an old tree that marked the turn-off for the ruins. A few minutes later he called to us and we cut up a slope for about ten minutes. The he stopped. There it was!"
- "Gene Dursin and I finally began our trip into the Lacandon Jungle last night. We caught the 8:30 bus from Mexico City to Coatzacoalcos, on the Gulf. After two and one- half months of planning, it is good to be under way... This town (Coatzacoalcos) is cloudy, dirty, and tropical. Still I like it... We have enough food and supplies for three weeks. I hope it is enough."
- "The plane made a sharp 180 degree turn and swept back toward the Lacandon camp. The jungle raced beneath us. Then a little dirt clearing opened up below and the plane skimmed even lower over the jungle and landed bumpily... A small band of strange-looking people had collected. Most of them wore a single, baggy, dresslike garment. Long black hair draped down their backs, shoulders, and sides of their faces, making the men indistinguishable from the women... 'They certaintly are a wild-looking bunch,' I thought."
