THE DIARIES OF PAUL K LYONS - 1976

In April 1976 I left New Zealand, and worked my passage on a container ship to Panama. From there I boat-hopped through the St Blas islands to Colombia. I travelled through Colombia, Ecuador (including the Galapagos Islands) and Peru. I was struck down with hepatitis in Lima and stayed put for a month while I recovered. For the last three months of the year, I lived in Vina del Mar, Chile, working as an 'Inspector' at a private school.

Diary 2 finishes in February 1976. I have no diary covering the last two months in New Zealand or the first three months in South America. This is because my bag (with diary) was stolen south of Lima, just when I'd shaken off the hepatitis and started travelling again. The only record I have of my travels during this period is in a few letters which, together, I've called Diary 2.5. Diary 3 starts in July 1976 and finishes half way through December. Diary 4 starts in December 1976.
