Locations Mentioned to Revisit

Original Voyage
Henri spent his first six months traveling the eastern United States and the Mississippi, before sailing to Havana. After a short stay in Cuba he traveled to Mexico where spent four more months. From Mexico he sailed to Panama and then to Lima. From Lima he had originally intended to go overland to Buenos Aires through Bolivia. However due to political instability in Bolivia, he decided instead to join a Peruvian expedition leading the first wave of German settlers by Baron Damian von Schütz to the town of Caballo-Cocha in Loreto state near the border with Brazil. His full journey across South America took him overland from Trujillo on the Pacific to the Brazilian state of Parà on the Atlantic.
