Cacambo proposed that they go to Cayenne, where they would find Frenchmen who might help them  and take pity on them. They started out on the arduous journey, crossing mountains and rivers and  meeting brigands and savages. Their horses died of fatigue, and for a month they lived on wild fruits.  At last they came to a little river bordered with coconut trees, which provided them with food.  Cacambo spotted an empty canoe on the beach and suggested that the two fill it with coconuts and  then drift with the current. A river, he explained, always led to some inhabited spot. Candide agreed  to this plan. The trip was not without its hazards, and at last their canoe was smashed on the reefs.  With difficulty they continued afoot, finally coming to a vast open country bordered by inaccessible  mountains. On the roads were splendidly ornate carriages in which were men and women of singular

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
