 The second plane descended and the pilot welcomed them toCampo Grande. Nate read his notes. Six hundred thousand people. A center for the cattle trade. Lots of cowboys. Rapid growth.

  When he stepped from the plane, the heat hit him. Two days before Christmas and it was over thirty-five degrees.

  He slept most of the hour it took to reach Corumbá. Set on the Bolivian border, the city had 90,000 people and was the capital of the Pantanal. River traffic and trade had built the city and kept it going. It was a lazy, pleasant little town. Storekeepers sat outside their stores waiting for customers and chatting with each other. Teenagers raced through the traffic on bikes. Children ate ice cream at sidewalk tables.

  Nate's room at the Palace Hotel was on the eighth floor. There was a narrow bed, a desk with a chair, a small refrigerator with bottled water and beer, and a clean bathroom.

  Nate stretched his tired body on the bed and went to sleep.

  第二趟航班降落之后,飞行员对旅客们来到大坎普表示欢迎。尼特读着他的情报。六十万人口,畜牧业中心,牛仔泛滥,发展迅速。

  他下了飞机,一阵热浪袭来。再过两天就是圣诞节了,这里的温度却超过了三十五度。

  在去科伦巴的旅途中他大部分时间都在睡觉。坐落在玻利维亚边境的这座城市拥有九万人口,是潘塔纳尔的首府。水上交通和贸易支撑着它的发展。这是一座慵懒舒适的小镇。店主们坐在商店外面等待顾客,彼此闲聊。青少年骑着自行车在车流中穿行。小孩子们坐在人行道的桌子旁吃冰激凌。

  尼特的住所在潘利斯旅馆的八楼,里面有一张窄窄的小床,一张桌子,桌旁放着一把椅子,一台小型冰箱,里面是瓶装水和啤酒,还有一个干净的卫生间。

  尼特舒展开疲惫的身躯躺在床上,进入了梦乡。
